1. Don't Cry Sweet Mama
Don't cry sweet Mama, please don't weep.
Please try dear Mama, to get some sleep.
I know you're sad, and its because of me.
But don't cry Mama, for now I am pain free.
I know you miss me, and I miss you too,
No one could have loved me more than you.
I know of some dogs that run away to die,
But not me Mama, I looked you straight in the eye.
I didn't want to leave you, but my body lost the fight.
And now my dearest Mama, you mourn me day and night.
You wished you could have given me a bit more time to live.
But Mama believe me, I had little left to give.
I am glad you took me on that day, there was no other choice.
I would have told you to "do it" - if I had a human voice.
Don't feel guilty Mama, I know it broke your heart.
I was always going to leave you first, we knew it from the start.
But what a life you gave me, it really was the best.
Not many have a life like mine, for that I am truly blessed.
I hope one day I will see you again,
With a smile upon your face.
But for now I will snuggle up inside your heart,
My very favorite place.
2. Waiting At The Door
I was just a pup when we first met, I loved you from the start.
You picked me up and took me home, And placed me in your heart.
Good times we had together, We shared all life could throw.
But years passed all too quickly, My time has come to go.
I know how much you miss me, I know your heart is sore.
I see the tears that fall When I'm not waiting at the door.
You always did your best for me, Your love was plain to see.
For even though it broke your heart, You set my spirit free.
So please be brave without me, One day we'll meet once more.
For when you're called to heaven, I'll be waiting at the door.
3. The Moment That You Left Me
The moment that you left me
My heart split in two
One side filled with memories
The other side died with you
I often lay awake at night
When the world is fast asleep
and take a walk down memory lane
With tears upon my cheek
Remembering you is easy
I do it everyday
But missing you is a heartache
That never goes away
I hold you tightly within my heart
And there you will remain
As my life goes on without you
But will never be the same.
4. You'll Meet Me In The Light
I know that you can't see me
but trust me I'm right here.
Although I'm up in heaven,
my love for you stays near.
So often I see you crying,
many times you call my name.
I want so much to lick your face
and ease some of your pain.
I wish that I could make you see
that Heaven indeed is real.
If you could see me run and play
how much better you would feel.
But our loving God has promised me
that when the time is right,
you'll step out of the darkness
and meet me in the light.
