remembered dogs

remember how your dog would greet you
whenever you came home
no matter where you'd gone
or, how long he'd been alone

it will be like that in heaven
whenever we arrive
the dogs we loved, will know we're there
like when we were alive

they'll greet us with such joy
saint peter will have to wait
but he too, will rejoice
with his dog beside that gate
to make sure that you arrive
you don't have to travel far,
just try to be the person 
that your dog believes you are
