Forever in our hearts
We love you Spook!
Have you a cat in Heaven, Lord?
and do You pat it's head?
Does he sit up and beg each night
before You go to bed.
Does he look up with shining eyes
when he sees Your smiling face?
Does he purr softly and crawl up
into Your lap because that's his special place?
Have You a cat in Heaven, Lord?
Is there room for just one more?
Cause my little cat died today
he'll be waiting at your door.
Please take him into Heaven, Lord
and keep him there for me,
feed him, pet him, love him Lord
that's all he'll ask of Thee.
Your favorite chair is vacant now...
no eager purrs to greet me.
No softly padded paws to run
ecstatically to meet me.
No coaxing rubs, no plaintive cry
will say it's time for feeding.
In time, I'll put away your bowl and all
the things you won't be needing.
I will miss you so much my little friend
for I could never measure
the happiness you brought me,
the comfort and the pleasure.
And since God put you here to share
in earthly joy and sorrow;
I know there is a place for you
in Heaven's bright tomorrow.
