Out in the trees, dirt on our knees
We laid him down forever
And on that hill there it was still
As in the ever after

He lays his rest we knew it best
To lay him down so gently
And now he sleeps where moss does creep
And no more is he with me

The birds did cry, and so did I
To think of life so lonely
And in their song I heard it long
What sadness, and what beauty
Your friend is gone, but you live on
In life you loved him fully
But now little streams and forests dream
And all is made more holy

    This song is about losing your best friend. It is about continuing to live on after your best friend is gone, and how the world continues with you, and in the world and the life force your friend lives still in another form. He is taken back to the source and made divine once more. This song resonates with power and deep feeling for anyone who has ever lost a dear friend, whether canine or human.
