We cannot express how much we miss you
Words just can't explain
No one likes to come home anymore
It just doesn't feel the same.
The house feels constantly empty-
Everything is so amiss
Your wonderful welcoming presence
Is just one of the things we'll miss.
You gave us so much joy and fun
You'd make us laugh out loud each day
The way you'd sneak to your favourite spot
How you always got your way.
You'd tell us off if we dared ignore you!
To hurry us up you'd shout and prance
You'd climb all over us if your dinner was late
You'd lead us a song and dance.
You were such a gentle, loving dog
You gave us so much pleasure
However short your time was with us
You gave us beautiful memories to treasure.
Those who have never had a pet
could not possibly comprehend
How they give you so much time and devotion
They truly are a special friend.
If tears could build a big green field
and memories a lane
I'd come right up to heaven
And we'd have "walkies" home again.
St.Peter in your heavenly land,
Should my most faithful friend you see?
Please open your gates, so this wonderful dog
Can come in and wait for me.
For when it’s my turn soon enough,
to cross the brief divide.
We’ll reunite and be Man and Dog
Once again, side by side.
