Treasured Friend

I lost a treasured friend today
The little dog who used to lay
Her gentle head upon my knee
And share her silent thoughts with me.

She'll come no longer to my call
Retrieve no more her favorite ball
A voice far greater than my own
Has called her to His golden throne.
Although my eyes are filled with tears
I thank Him for the happy years
He let her spend down here with me
And for her love and loyalty.

When it is time for me to go
And join her there, this much I know
I shall not fear the transient dark
For she will greet me with her bark.

  A Little Dog Angel

High up in the courts of heaven today 
A little dog angel waits.
With the other angels he will not play,
But he sits alone at the gates.
For I know my master will come, says he 
And when he comes he will call for me.


The other angels pass him by
As they hurry towards the throne.
And he watches them with a wistful eye
As he sits at the gates alone.
But I know if I just wait patiently
That someday my master will call for me.
And his master, down on the earth below,
As he sits in his easy chair,
Forgets sometimes and whispers low
To the dog who is not there.
And the little dog angel cocks his ears,
And dreams that his master's voice he hears.
And when at last his master waits
Outside in the dark and cold.
For the hand of death to open the door
That leads to those courts of gold.
He will hear a sound through the gathering dark,
A little dog angel's bark.
