To My Best Friend

The day they laid you down to sleep
I prayed to the Lord, your soul he'll keep
Until the appointed day and time
when together we'll meet, and all will be fine

With all God's, creatures great and small
go run and play now, have a ball
No more aches, and no more pain
just bright sunshine, no more rain

Rest in peace, for now best friend
cradled in God's arms, to the end
Dream of that special, day and time
when we'll meet at the Bridge, one last time

Although we'll be separated, for a long time
we'll be together then, and all will be fine
We'll cross Rainbow Bridge, side by side
with a soft warm feeling, deep down inside

Once again then, all will be fine
we're together forever, till the end of time
