Always I think of her up in heaven:
Safe haven for each good-hearted canine.
I miss her, but entrust her back to God:
She started in His heart, so pure, unflawed.
Each time she comes to mind, I think of this,
Encouraged, though her friendship here I miss.
I hope her home in Heaven’s close to mine—
Though anywhere up there would be just fine!
