To loose a pet is never easy.
They leave the biggest footprints in our hearts.
They give us so much, and life seems so empty when they cross The Rainbow Bridge.
My son asked me what happens when dogs die.
I told him that they goes to a beautiful place where they can run, play catch and
have all the bones they want. And, that if you look up in the sky at night,
the brigthest star you see, is were they are. Looking down on us and watching over us
together with all our beloved ones that we have said goodbye to and that we miss so much. And one day, we will all be together again ...
All dogs go to heaven
“Do dogs go to heaven?” my little boy said.
“Of course,” I replied, as I tucked him in bed.
“How could something so precious not be up above,
Returned to the Father on wings of your love.”
“Will I see Lille again?” he asked with a yawn.
“She’s waiting for you just as sure as the dawn,
To play catch with you on a soft green lawn,
Then rest by your side ‘til the day is gone.”
“Will Lille know who I am ‘cause I won’t look the same?
Will she come to me Mom when I call her name?”
“I know that she will and I’ll tell you why,
The love that you shared never can die.”
”So rest now my child and know that it’s true,
When you think of Lille she’s here with you.”
I havn't left at all
I saw you gently weeping as you looked through photographs
You paused for just a moment at one that made you laugh.
But as you turned more pages the tears began to flow
You whispered that you missed me but I want you to know;
I softly licked those stinging tears that down your cheeks did fall
I want to help you understand I haven’t left at all.
On those days that you are overcome with sorrow, pain and grief
I rest my head upon your leg to offer some relief.
When you take our walking path I’ve seen you turn around
Because I know you surely heard my paws upon the ground.
At night while you are sleeping I snuggle at your side
You stroke my fur as you touch that place where I used to lie.
You said it’s just your heart playing tricks upon your mind
But rest assured I’m really there, my spirit’s left behind.
I know your heart is hurting; it’s like an open sore
You think my life has ended and you won’t see me anymore.
But for those of us bound tight by love, death is not the curtain call;
It’s really the eternal beginning that waits for us all
So, dear Master as you live your life I patiently await
For us to be together when you pass through Heaven’s gate.
Bare en hund
Jeg stryker deg over din myke pels,
men halen din går ikke mer.
Øynene dine er lukket igjen,
over øyne som ikke ser.
Ditt gode hjerte har sluttet å slå,
aldri mer løpe, hoppe, gå.
Alt er slutt, det er over nå.
Jeg legger hodet mitt ned mot ditt, og tårene drypper som blod.
Aldri mer skal det bli som før-aldri mer "oss to".
Som isende kulde inne i meg,
kjenner jeg noe som dør med deg.
Jeg må reise meg sier de, jeg går mot en dør,
der ute går livet videre som før.
Jeg snur meg, du ligger så livløs og stille,
du kan ikke komme selv om du ville.
Skriket vil ut, men jeg lukker min munn.
Hvem var det som sa : "Bare en hund"?
