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.

Always Near

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.
