Poignant Words of Comfort

"But if the while
I think on thee dear friend
All losses are restored
and sorrows end"

Just this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are Meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigour; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing: they each miss someone very special to them who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance.
His bright eyes are intent, his eager body quivers.
Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted; and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion never to be parted again.
The happy kisses rain upon your face, your hands again caress the beloved head and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet; so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.......

Those golden days will not return
when we were here together,
But with the love left in my heart,
you'll stay with me forever.
(Deanna Wharton)

They will not go quietly
the pets who've shared our lives,
In subtle ways they let us know
Their spirit still survives

Old habits still can make us think
We hear them at the door,
Or step back when we drop
a tasty morsel on the floor

Our feet still go around the place
the food dish used to be,
And sometimes coming home at night
We miss them terribly.

And although time may bring new friends
and a new food dish to fill
That one place in our hearts
belongs to them.........and always will.

Because I could not stop for Death
He kindly stopped for me
The carriage held but just ourselves
and Immortality

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glint on snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain
When you wake in the morning hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circling flight
I am the soft starlight at night
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there I do not sleep
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there ......I did not die
(Mary Frye 1932)

"So long as men can breathe
or eyes can see
So long lives love....
and love gives life to thee"

I'm getting on in years
My coat is turning grey
My eyes have lost their luster
My hearings just ok

I spend my day dreaming
of conquests in my past
Lying near a sunny window
waiting for its warm repast

I remember our first visit
I was coming to you free
Hoping you would take me in
and keep my company

I wasn't young or handsome
Two years I'd roamed the street
There were scars upon my face
I hobbled on my feet

I could sense your disappointment
as I left my prison cage
Oh, I hoped you would accept me
and look beyond my age

You took me out of pity
I accepted without shame
Then you grew to love me
and I must admit the same

I have shared with you your laughter
You have wet my fur with tears
We've come to know each other
throughout these many years

Just one more hug this morning
Before you drive away
and know I'll think about you
throughout your busy day

The time we've left together
is a treasured time at that
My heart is yours forever......
I promise

I live among God's creatures now
In the Heavens of your mind
So do not grieve for me, dear friend
For I am with my kind

My collar is a rainbows hue
My leash a shooting star,
My boundaries are the Milky Way,
Where I sparkle from afar

I nap the day on snowy clouds
Gentle breezes softly rock me
And dream the dream of Earthlings
And how it used to be

The trees are full of special treats
And tennis balls abound
And milkbones line the walkways
Just waiting to be found

I drink from waters laced with gold
My world a beauty to behold
And wise old dogs do form my pride
To amble at my very side

At night I sleep in Angel's arms
Her wings protecting me
And moonbeams dance around us
As stardust falls on Thee

So when your life on Earth is spent
And you stand at Heaven's Gate
Have no fear of loneliness...
For here, you know, I wait
(Author unknown)

I explained to St Peter
I'd rather stay here
Outside of the Pearly Gate
I won't be a nuisance, I won't even bark
I'll be very patient and wait.
I'll be here chewing on a celestial bone,
No matter how long you may be.
I'd miss you so much if I went in alone
It wouldn't be Heaven for me
