In memory of Maggie
This song was written for our friend Kathy Gorish as a tribute to her beloved dog Maggie who passed away from cancer earlier this year. Maggie was a rescue dog and she'd been through hard times before Kathy gave her a home. Kathy was so distressed when she lost Maggie and she asked us if we could write a song in her memory.

Sweet baby girl how could this world be so unkind?
The sun's gone out, the stars will never be as bright
On angel's wings you're always just a tear away
Riding there beside me on a summer's day.
A part of me was lost the day you went away
You touched my soul forever when you came to stay
I know there will be others who will need my trust
Oh Maggie you're my special girl, sleep safe my love.
This world can be so hard to bear, such cruel fate
The one's that mean the most can never be replaced
You know I loved you deeply and I gave my all
And you gave more to me than you will ever know.
Oh Maggie there's a place beyond the clouds and rain
And you and I will find each other there again
My heart is broken still my dear and I must mend
My gentle loyal partner, oh my precious friend.
