Don't Grieve Too Long (9/27/13)


Don't grieve too long for now I'm free 

I've followed the path God set for me 

I ran to Him when I heard His call 

I swished my tail and left it all.


I could not stay another day 

To bark, to love, to romp or play 

Games left unplayed must stay that way 

I found such peace, it made my day.


My parting has left you with a void 

Please fill it with remembered joy 

A friendship shared, your laugh, a kiss 

Oh yes, these things I too shall miss.


Be not burdened with times of sorrow 

I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow 

My life's been full, you've given so much 

Your time, your love and gentle touch.


Perhaps my time seemed all too brief 

Don't lengthen it now with undue grief 

Lift up your head and share with me 

God wanted me, He set me free!
