I wasn’t meant to walk alone, It wasn’t in His plan.
A friend he sent to earth one day, a wondrous little man.
We went through life together, my little buddy jumped and played.
We learned about each other, and ourselves through life each day.
From puppy-hood to golden years, his time still way to short,
the blessings that he gave, came from friendship and support.
One day he had to leave me, God called him to come home.
I miss and think about him, but I know I’m not alone.
As Man’s Best Friend turned Angel, he still watches over me.
His spirit lives with me. His voice the wind up in the trees.
I feel him at my side, I know he’s standing there.
I know deep in my heart, he was the answer to my prayers.
His days now filled with fun and sun, he waits around the bridge.
While another came to walk with me, to continue my voyage.
She was just as great in different ways, but many ways the same.
She only lived to please me, had no cares of cash or fame.
Her time with me was short, but as full as it could be.
I learned a lot from her, and she learned a lot from me.
She went to heaven way to soon, suddenly one day,
Now she’s with the others as they run and laugh and play.
Another angel got her wings, and now watches over me.
Together giving guidance, they allow my mind to see.
Today there’s yet another soul that knows my love so true,
I’ll give her everything she needs to be as good as two.
I’ll give her love and guidance ‘til she gets her set of wings.
She’ll always get the things she needs, happy life and everything.
When life is full of troubled times, and has me on my knees.
I know she’ll always be right there to calm and comfort me.
I can’t touch or hold my angels, like I would like to do.
But until that time comes again, her love now pulls me through.
