He has put so much love in some critters
And you know that they brighten a home
And you cherish their heartiest welcomes
In the door from wherever you’ve roamed.
And they thrill getting family together
And they chase the old toy that you toss
But you feel now the house is so quiet
As you cope with their leaving and loss.
Do you think that our consummate Maker
Would put down and forget one small Friend
And would not form a homestead well-fitting
For those bundles of love at their end?
