"A DOGS PRAYER"
Treat me kindly my beloved master, for no heart in all the world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of me. Do not break my spirit with a stick, for your voice is the worlds sweetest music, as you must know by my fierce wagging of my tail when your footsteps fall upon my waiting ear.When it is cold and wet or intensely hot, please take me inside, for I am now a domestic animal, no longer used to the bitter elements. And I ask no greater glory that the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the hearth. If you had no home, I would rather follow you through ice and snow than rest upon the softest pillow in all the land, for you are my God and I am your devoted worshipper. Keep my pan filled with fresh water, for although I would not reproach you were it dry, I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst. Feed me clean food, that I may stay well to romp and play and do your bidding, to walk by your side, and stand ready, willing and able to protect you with my life should your life be in danger. And my beloved master, should the great Master see fit to deprive me of my health or sight, do not turn me away from you, rather hold me gently in your arms as skilled hands grant me the mercy of eternal rest... and I will leave knowing with the last breath I drew, my fate was always safest in your hands.
Daddy Joe, Efren and Rocky dedicate this song to our beloved Rocco Diamond Phillips.
The Rainbow Bridge
There is a bridge connecting heaven and earth, a space
and place in time known as Rainbow Bridge. They say.
Just this side is a land of green meadows, rolling hills and
valleys covered with lush grass and beautiful flowers.
And it's here that all creatures big and small come to play
when their days are done. At Rainbow Bridge, even the old
and frail are young again. They say.
Then one day, from out of the blue, an animal will break
away from the pack and look back. Ears perked, tail wagging,
You have been seen. You take your pal in your
arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again and
you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet.
Then the two of you cross Rainbow Bridge together, never
again to be seperated. They say.
And I believe.
Lend me a pup
I will lend to you a puppy, God said,
For you to love him while he lives
and to mourn for him when he is gone.
Maybe for 12 or 14 years, or maybe 2 or 3.
But will you, till I call him back take care of
him for me?
He'll bring his charms of gladden you and
( should his stay be brief)
you 'll always have his memories as solace for
your grief . I cannot promise that he will stay
since all from Earth return, But there are lessons
taught below I want this pup to learn.
I 've looked the whole world over in search of teachers
true. And from the fold that crowd life's land.
I have chosen you.
Now will you give him all your love.
Nor think the labor vain, nor hate me when I
come to take my pup back again?
I fancied that I heard them say
"Dear Lord, they will be Done,"for all the
joy this pup will bring the risk of grief you'll run.
Will you shelter him with tenderness,
will you love him while you may?
And for happiness you'll know forever
But should I call him back much sooner
than you 've planned please brave the bitter grief
that comes and try to understand.
If, by your love, you've managed my wishes to achive
In memory of him that you 've loved, cherish every moment
with your faithful bundle, and know he loved you too.
As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played,
I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade.
I saw a wondrous image then of a place that's trouble-free
Where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.
I saw the most beautiful Rainbow, and on the other side
Were meadows rich and beautiful -- lush and green and wide!
And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see
Were animals of every sort as healthy as could be!
My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new
And I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do.
I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I'm alright
That this place is truly wonderful, then a bright Glow pierced the night.
'Twas the Glow of many Candles shining bright and strong and bold
And I knew then that it held your love in its brilliant shades of gold.
For although we may not be together in the way we used to be,
We are still connected by a cord no eye can see.
So whenever you need to find me, we're never far apart
If you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart.
