dog tennis ball

I got to the gate of heaven yesterday
after we said good-bye.
I began to miss you terribly,
because I heard you cry.

Suddenly there was an angel and she asked me
to enter heaven’s gate.
I asked her if I could stay outside
for someone who’d be late.

I wouldn’t make much noise you see,
I wouldn’t bark or howl.
I’ll only wait here patiently
and play with my tennis ball.

The angel said I could stay right here
and wait for you to come
Because heaven just wouldn’t be heaven
if I went in alone.

So I’ll wait here, you take your time,
but keep me in your heart.
Because heaven just wouldn’t be heaven
without you to warm my heart.
