|BLESS OUR PETS |
|They say memories are golden. |
Well, maybe that is true,
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.
A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you.
You never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
No one could ever fill.
If tears could build a stairway
And heartache a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
And bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same.
But as we are called one by one,
The chain will link again.
