They come into our lives for such a short time-
a time we wouldn’t trade not even for a dime.
Then before you know it the years have flown by
and then all of a sudden we’re saying good-bye.
It wasn’t that long ago we said our good-byes.
We held on to you tight as you closed your eyes.
Your spirit has flown home on the wings of a dove
into God’s loving arms; in heaven above.
Over the days we’ve shed many tears
but the memories we have will live on for years.
We feel your presence and we know that you are near
You’re keeping us safe and calming our fears.
We think about memories from years past
when you were young and strong and ran so fast.
We remember all the great times that we all had.
How you always made us happy never made us mad.
They were the best and happiest years we had.
We’ll always look back on them and never be sad.
We look forward to the time we’ll be together again
and we thank the Lord for such a great friend
Now you run and play up in Heaven above
cradled in God’s arms covered with his love.
Playing by the Bridge waiting for the day
we come down through the meadow to the bridge to stay.
The love that you showed us we’ll never forget
because to us you’re one very special pet.
You’re like a star in the dark of night
always watching over us with the Lord’s light.
So now we take time to remember our best friend
who will always be with us even to the end.
We’ll always remember you the way you were-
one big lovable, huggable pile of fur.
