I got to the gate of Heaven yesterday
after we said goodbye.
I began to miss you terribly,
because I heard you cry.
Suddenly, here 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.
