:candle THE SPIRIT OF A GREYHOUND

 

I was standing on a hillside

In a field of blowing wheat,

And the spirit of a Greyhound

Was lying at my feet.

 

He looked at me with kind dark eyes,

Ancient wisdom shining through.

In the essence of his being,

I saw the love there too.

 

His mind did lock upon my heart

As I stood there on that day,

And he told me of this story

About a place so far away.

 

As I stood upon that hillside

In a field of blowing wheat,

In a twinkling of a second

His spirit left my feet.

 

His tale did put my heart at ease,

All my fears did fade away

About what lay ahead of me

On another distant day.

 

"I live among God's creatures now

In the heavens of your mind,

So do not grieve for me, my friend

As I am with my kind.

 

My collar is a rainbow's hue,

My leash is a shooting star.

My boundaries are the Milky Way

Where I sparkle from afar.

 

There are no pens or kennels here

For I am not confined,

But I'm free to roam God's heavens

Among the Greyhound kind.

 

I nap the day on a snowy cloud

Gentle breezes rocking me,

And dream the dreams of earthlings,

And how it used to be.

 

The trees are full of liver treats,

And tennis balls abound,

And milkbones line the walkways

Just waiting to be found.

 

There even is a ring set up,

The grass all lush and green;

And everyone who gaits around

Becomes the Best of breed.

 

For we're all winners in this place;

We have no faults, you see.

And God passes out those ribbons

To each one, even me.

 

I drink from waters laced with gold,

My world a beauty to behold;

And wise old dogs do form my pride

To amble at my very side.

 

At night I sleep in angel's arms,

Her wings protecting me,

And moonbeams dance about us

As stardust falls on thee.

 

So when your life on earth is spent

And you stand at Heaven's gate,

Have no fear of loneliness--

For here, you know, I wait.

That is so beautiful. It hurts to read all the passings of our greys. I dread that day so much, I will never be the same. God bless all the mommys and daddys of the greys who passed and grant them comfort and heal their pain. To the greys - run free.

Beautiful poem. It's been such a hard last few weeks it seems and there really are no words to help ease the pain, at least none I can think of. The only thing I can think of is to say how deeply sorry I am to all of those that have lost such good friends. There's nothing like the unwavering, unending love from God's 4 legged souls that we adore so much. Godspeed sweet souls, you are forever in our hearts.
