A Quote by Pablo Neruda on heaven, afterlife, dogs, materialism, atheism, and pets

And I, a materialist who does not believe
in the starry heaven promised
to a human being,
for this dog and for every dog
I believe in heaven, yes, I believe in a heaven
that I will never enter, but he waits for me
wagging his big fan of a tail
so I, soon to arrive, will feel welcomed.

Pablo Neruda (1904 - 1973)
