Animal Poem

I am forever an animal lover, more so a dog lover. This is a question many times I have heard asked by children, so as I may not be able to answer that question for certain I did write a poem in hopes that children will enjoy the comfort in the possibility that maybe there will be animals in heaven.

Are There Pawprints In Heaven?

© Missy Davis
I hear of a place that is made of gold,
a place where we shall never grow old,
But one answer I have not heard at all,
will there be paw prints from my little dog?
He promised us joy right from the start,
I just wonder if she'll be a part.
So as I sit here and dream of the day,
I wonder if heaven she will stay?
When your walking down with the saints of old
take a glimpse of that new road and if there you shall see,
Maybe a pawprint just for me.
