A while back we were talking about heaven, and if there were animals, etc. there. Well, I believe that they are, and I found this poem for those of you who believe your animals are there waiting on you. Enjoy.
By Francis Clark 1946
A dog's small world is full of dreams
Of full food bowls and scents unseen
Of open fields and cozy chair
And, most of all, you standing there
And when the end is drawing near
And you are trying to stem your tears
He licks your hand with happy sigh
Content that you are standing by
And when he reaches Heaven's Gate
The Lord says "Come" But he says "Wait"
"I have a friend I love so dear
And I can feel her footsteps near"
Your lifetime's passed You near Gods throne
One happy glance, Your not alone
Your loving pet, so patient waits,
To pass with you through Heaven's Gates
Isn't that beautiful? I am going to type it up and send it to my Aunt Linda and Uncle Ken who lost their beloved dog Lucy to cancer just a week ago.
