First Dog, Heart Dog

An ocean of tears
Still the sadness lingers
First dog, heart dog
Tender gentle one
Abby Rose, my greyhound girl
Departed life too soon
I look upward late
One very cold night
A heavenly gift
Sixty-seven shooting stars
Crisscross above
The biggest and the brightest
Arches sprightly across the sky
Directly over me
A very special visitor
Shows me now
She’s running free and happy
Finally I can smile
And I do

First Dog, Heart Dog

Artist's Description

This is an experience I had one extremely chilly night, standing out on the back deck watching shooting stars a few months after losing my beloved greyhound to an auto-immune disease when she was only five years old.
