For Karen and Mon
You ask me if there's dogs in heaven,
That's an answer only you may know.
But there's a few things I will tell you,
Unconditional love they will bestow.
From God's Treasure Chest of Love,
With His Wisdom and Blessing's He sends,
The greatest joy into our lives
And they do become our very best friends.
They learn all about us,
We can live in a mansion or a shack.
They'll adapt to living with us,
And their love they'll never hold back.
When we laugh, they bounce all around,
Barking and dancin' with joy.
Knowing we are so happy ,
They love the things we enjoy.
They know when we're sad,
Happy, tired, or just plain weary.
Always there to give us courage,
To face the things of which we're leery.
Of all the things I've learned in life,
The most important I have found,
Is to appreciate and take care of,
The love in their heart that abounds.
