Waiting at the Door

I was just a pup when we first met,
I loved you from the start
You picked me up and took me home
and placed me in your heart.
Good times we had together,
we shared all life could throw,
But years passed all too quickly,
my time has come to go.
I know how much you miss me,
I know your heart is sore
I see the tears that fall
when I'm not Waiting at the Door.
You always did the best for me,
your love was plain to see
For even though it broke your heart,
you set my spirit free.
So please be brave without me,
one day we'll meet once more.
For when you're called to Heaven,
I'll be Waiting at the Door.
