Faithful Friend

I still dream of the little dog
I had as a child
Like her spirit has followed me
Carefree and wild
And she comes when I need her
With her comfort so mild
Oh what a faithful companion
To have as a child!

If there really is heaven
To await when we die
A true re-communion
With souls passing by
If I came to those gates
There is one thing Iā€™d cry
Let me rest here a moment
With my companion nearby!

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

    So beautiful and relatable.

  3. “Let me rest here a moment
    With my companion nearby!” all who have lost furbabies can relate.

    The thing that put me off being a Christian for good was that, according to the Bible, animals don’t have souls. I figured if they didn’t have eternal souls and a place in heaven, then I don’t want one either.

  6. For we with canine companions (past and present), this is very warming. Thanks!

  7. This is so sweet, Helen. I, too, had a dog as a child that I remember fondly and miss often. She was awesome! Thanks for writing this! “D

  9. I will stand on the rainbow bridge and see my furbabies again…….someday. They never really leave you… there’s a place where they reside in your heart forever šŸ˜‰
