Opal's Prayer

 

Unable to decline His request to take her,
Opal lives in Heaven now.
How? Why? Thy Will Be Done.
Dear God, Opal is Yours now!
Please take care of her every day.
May we meet again, Dearest Little One.

I search for Opal far and wide
but she can not be found,
I turn my gaze heaven bound ~
A white hound by my side.
May we meet again, Dearest Little One.

I pray for  the return of those days
when Opal was our dog
Halcyon days ~ now lost forever!
May we meet again, Dearest Little One.

A life for me but none for her.  Therefore
It was meant to be
Just Opal too brief and Opal no more.
May we meet again, Dearest Little One!

Four years ago today and you were gone
My life became an endless quest
I lied and said you were walking by my side
the only way I could go on.
May we meet again, Dearest Little One!

Gone but not forgotten ~ Angels weep for Thee!
Opal waits in constant vigil at the Gate for me.
May we meet again, Dearest Little One.
