~ An Hour
God, would you keep her for me?
This furry child of mine?
I'm so lonesome since she went away,
They couldn't stop that car in time.
I watched it as it happened,
My heart was ripped from my chest,
Those memories still stir my soul.,
But memory of her love is best.
When she was just a little one,
In my jacket she would ride,
So I could keep her warm and safe.
She filled my soul with pride.
She loved to take a shower!!!!
My shampoo she'd always share,
I got as wet as she did!!!!!!!
But we didn't seem to care.
She loved to travel with us,
Or go on a fishing trip,
But when the weather got too hot
She'd lay under the fan a bit.
She loved to go to grandma's house
And she made almost every trip !
Grandma had the neatest treats,
And we went there quite a bit !
There's not a person in my family Lord
That doesn't miss her bark, her style,
God, would you keep her for me,
Till I get there in a while?
Thank You, Dear Lord, for keeping her
For she expressed to me
Her Loyalty, Her Faith, Her confidence--
How unconditional love should be.
I know she has joined my Angels,.
And will guide me through the years
Heaven's Gates will open one day for me
And I'll be smiling through my tears.
