It's never easy to say good-byes
When they speak to us with their eyes.
When their bodies are tired, weak and old,
And the love we've shared becomes pure gold.
The measure of friendship is put to the test,
When the showing is finished and it's time to rest.
From deep in their hearts their eyes will ask,
" Please ease my pain " - your most difficult task.
There's joy in the memories, treasure them all,
Winning a ribbon or chasing a ball.
So go now, you're free, to run and to play,
Where the sun always shines, day after day.
For the Master you serve now is gracious and fair,
And he'll love you and guide you until I am there.
