Special Place

You have a special place, Dear Lord
That I know you’ll always keep.
A special place reserved for dogs,
To peacefully fall asleep.

A place with fluffy pillows,
And a yard for hiding bones,
With maybe a little babbling creek,
That rushes over stones.

With wide green fields and flowers,
For those who never knew
Of running, playing freely
Under sky of perfect blue.

Lord, I know you keep this special place,
And so, to you I pray
For one oh so special dog
Who came to you today.

She was full of strength and love,
And so very, very wise.
The puppy look she once had,
This morning left her eyes.

She will be dearly missed, Lord,
This special love of mine.
But now, she’ll romp and play
In your land that’s so divine.

Speak to my baby softly, please
With a hug and warm hello.
She’s a special gift to you, Dear Lord
From me — who loves her so.
