To Dad Lobelts and Mom Lulu -
my dearest family ...
There's some things I'd like to say,
But first of all, to let you know
That I have arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven.
Here I dwell with God above,
Where there's no more tears of sadness ...
There is just eternal love.
The day I had to leave you
When my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me
And said, "I welcome you!"
"It's good to have you back again,
You were missed while you were gone;
As for your vacationing dearest family,
Your Vet will tell them later on."
"I need you here badly,
As you're part of my plan;
There's so much that we have to do,
To help our mortal man."
I wish that I could tell you
All that God has planned;
But if I were to tell you,
You really wouldn't understand.
It was always my philosophy
And I'd like it be for you too,
That as you give unto the world,
The world will give back to you.
If you can ever help some bunny like me
Who's in sorrow and pain,
Then you can say to God at night ...
"My day was not in vain."
For now I am contented,
That my life was worthwhile;
Knowing as I passed along the way,
I was able to make you smile.
So if you meet some bunny
Who is sad and feeling low ...
Just lend a hand to pick him up,
As on your way you go.
When you're out in your backyard
And you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps
Only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go
From that body to be free,
I'll rush to the heavenly gate ...
Tell God my Dad is finally here with me.
