Buddy by Kel and Joan Hansen / Mommy and Daddy

To our little baby boy ….


My best friend closed his eyes last night,
As his head was in my hand.
The Doctor said he was in pain,
And it was hard for him to stand.

The thoughts that scurried through my head,
As I cradled him in my arms.
Were of his younger, puppy years,
And,oh,his many charms!

Today, there was no gentle nudge,
With an intense “I love you gaze”.
Only a heart that’s filled with tears,
Remembering our joy-filled days.

But an Angel just appeared to me,
And said, “You should cry no more.
God also loves our canine friends,
HE’s installed a ‘doggy door’!!!”
