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
An oh his many charms.

Today there was not 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 he said “you should cry no more!”
GOD also loves our canine friends
He’s installed a doggie door!
