Time to Go
The time has come I think you know.
The Lord is calling so I must go.
I love you so much; I wish it wasn't so.
I wish I could stay; I don't want to go.
You're the best family a dog ever had,
so kind and gentle, never mean or mad.
I'll never forget the day that we met.
I was so lucky to become your pet.
You opened your door and showed me your heart.
I'll never forget you; we'll never part.
You loved me and cared for me over the years.
You taught me everything and took away my fears.
The Lord is calling now I must go.
But before I go I want you to know,
I know it hurts to lose a friend,
but I'll always be with you even to the end.
