Spirit of a Doberman”

I was standing on a Hillside In a field of blowing wheat and

the spirit of a Doberman Was lying at my feet.

He looked at me with kind dark eyes

An ancient wisdom shining through And in

the essence of his being I saw love there too.

His mind did lock upon my heart

As I stood there on that day And he told me of this story

About a place so far away I stood upon that Hillside

In afield of blowing wheat

And in a twinkling of a second His spirit left my feet.

His tale did put my heart at ease

My fears did fade away About

what lay ahead of me On another distant day.

“I live among God’s creatures now

In the heavens of your mind So do not

grieve for me, my friend As I am with my kind.

My collar is a rainbow’s hue My leash a shooting star

My boundaries are the Milky Way Where I sparkle from afar.

There are no pens or kennels here

For I am not confined But free to roam

God’s heavens Among the Dobie kind.

I nap the day on a snowy cloud Gentle breezes rocking me

And dream the dreams of earthlings And how it used to be.

The trees are full of liver treats And tennis balls abound

And milkbones

line the walkways Just waiting to be found.

There even is a ring set up The grass all lush and green

Where even Rescue Dobermans Become the Best of Breed.

For we’re all winners in this place We have no faults,

you see And god passes out those ribbons

To each one, even me.

I drink from waters laced with gold

My world a beauty to behold And wise old

dogs do form my pride To amble at my very side.

At night I sleep in an angel’s arms Her wings protecting me

And moonbeams dance about us As stardust falls on thee.

So when your life on earth is spent And you stand

at Heaven’s gate

Have no fear of loneliness For here, you know I wait.”
