The Spirit of a German Shepherd Dog

I was standing on a hillside, in a field of blowing wheat
And the spirit of a German Shepherd Dog was lying at my feet
She looked at me with kind dark eyes, ancient wisdom shining through
And in the essence of her being his love shone clear and true.
Her mind did lock upon my heart as I stood there on that day
And she told me of this story about a place so far away.
Her tale did put my heart at ease, 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 for I am with my kind.

My collar is a rainbow’s hue, my leash a shooting star.
My boundaries are the Milky Way where I sparkle from afar.

There are no pens or kennels here, and I am not confined
But free to roam God’s heavens among my Shepherd 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 an 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.”

Mä annan sut pois, mä päästän sut pois, vaikka sattuu.
Sä annat mut pois, sä päästät mut pois, kaikkeen tottuu.
Hymyillään, vaan ei oo muutakaan enää antaa.
Luovutaan toisistamme hiljaa…
