Iíll Be WaitingÖ.
At The Heeler Bridge
By Darren M. Grine
You were so happy when I became a part of your family.
Since Iím a Heeler, you praised me because I was unfailing.
When I was hungry or thirsty, you always looked after me.
In return, I wagged my tail and gave you a thankful licking.
If I got sick we went to the vet and made sure I stayed
When you became ill I stayed with you while you were healing.
My favorite thing to do was to chew on bones and ever please.
I treasured our times together, especially when we went
As the years passed we became best of friends for all to see.
Where did our time go, I thought it would be forever lasting.
So many memories, I wished time stood still for you and me.
Itís now my golden years, I am graying and my health is
I know youíre sad, but donít be, for now is the time to set
I want to stay, but my body says no, this is my hour of
Donít worry, because Iím ready to go, so I want you to be
I am now free, no pain, hunger, or thirst, active and happy.
There are so many jubilant creatures here joyfully playing.
My strength is back just like in my youth and Iím full of
I can run at pleasure and do my favorite things of chasing
This is a special place, itís where souls meet up with their
pets and family.
There are plenty of bridges for loved ones to cross, with so
One thing is missing and that is you, but I can wait
As time passes, Iíll be waiting for you at the Heeler Bridge.
