I got to the gate of Heaven yesterday
After we said good-bye.
I began to miss you terribly,
Because I heard you cry.
Suddenly there was an Angel
And she asked me to enter Heaven's gate.
I asked her if I could stay outside
For someone who'd be late.
I wouldn't make much noise you see,
I wouldn't bark or howl.
I'll only wait here patiently
And play with my tennis ball.
The Angel said I could stay right here
And wait for you to come.
Because Heaven just wouldn't be Heaven
If I went in alone.
So I'll wait right here, you take your time.
But keep me in your heart.
Because Heaven just wouldn't be Heaven
Without you to warm my heart.
