Loss of Dog
If I have any beliefs about immortality, it is that certain dogs I have known will go to heaven and very, very few persons.
Dog’s lives are too short. Their only fault, really.
Agnes Sligh Turnbull

the moon, and the sun. He made man and bird and beast.
But He didn’t make the dog. He already had one.
If love alone could have kept you here, you would’ve lived forever.
Some angels choose fur instead of wings.
A good dog never dies, he always stays,
he walks beside you on crisp autumn days
when frost is on the fields and winter’s drawing near,
his head within our hand in his old way.

Do not Mourn my Passing
Do not mourn my passing for if you could only see
by slipping all my earthly bonds, I’m young again and free.
By day I run the Heavenly fields, my body healthy and strong,
At night I sleep at Angels’ Feet, lulled by Celestial Song.
So do not mourn my passing, just close your eyes – you’ll see
I’m once again that frisky pup, just as you remember me.

For loss of Cat
No heaven will not ever Heaven be. Unless my cats are there to welcome me.
Don’t Cry for me When I’m Gone
So, though I give you all my heart,
The time will come when we must part.
But all around you, you will see,
Creatures that speak to you of me;
A tired horse, a hunted thing,
A sparrow with a broken wing –
Pity – and help (I know you will)
And somehow, I will be with you still;
And I shall know, although I’m gone,
The love I gave you lingers on.
Goodbyes are not forever. Goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean I’ll miss you until we meet again!
