Treasured Friend

I lost a treasured friend today — The little Golden who used to lay
Her gentle head upon my knee — And share her silent thoughts with me.
She’ll come no longer to my call — Retrieve no more her favorite ball
A voice far greater than my own — Has called her to His Golden throne.
Although my eyes are filled with tears, I thank Him for the happy years
He let her spend down here with me — And for her love and loyalty.
When it is time for me to go — And join her there, this much I know.
I shall not fear the transient dark — For she will greet me with her bark.
