Written shortly after losing one of the best dogs, ever, my companion and protector, Charlie


For Charlie


When the shadow fades, you’ll be in Heaven
Friends are there, waiting for you
When you wake you will feel much better
The gates are open, go on through
There was nothing more that we could do
And so we said goodbye
You’ve earned your place across the bridge,
Go with head held high


Don’t’ worry, nothing’s wrong
Don’t look back now, run  along
I couldn’t stop the shadow’s fall
But when it fades, you’ll be in Heaven
