A Glimpse of the Rainbow Bridge
Was it today; yesterday; a week; a year
There are no days; there are no nights
since my furchild died.
I reach to pet my furry friend who is no
My heart is broken; my arms are empty;
how many tears I've cried.
I leave the house,into the lane we always
The rain is falling. I notice not. Just
more tears on my face.
He used to lead me down the lane. His spirit
leads me still.
But we go a different way to a very strange
and different place.
I stand before a rustic bridge I've never
I stop. I know I'm not to cross. But why,I
want to know?
And then the rain suddenly stops. I look
up into the clouds.
I look down. The bridge is gone and in
its place is a rainbow.
I look across the Rainbow Bridge and see
a joyful sight;
Thousands of healthy furchildren playing
with my beloved pet.
I want to run and love him, but I'm rooted
to the spot.
He looks and wags his tail and I hear him
And then his bark turns to a voice and
I hear him say,
"You cared for me,you played with me and
loved me to the end.
I'm healthy now,don't cry for me. I'll
meet you here again.
Others need your love and care. I'm sending
you a friend."
I rub my eyes and the rainbow is again
a rustic bridge.
I send a prayer for that quick glimpsee
to the loving God above.
I hear a noise and glance back down. I
can't believe my eyes.
Across the bridge,my darling pet sent a
furbaby for me to love.
I pick up the furry bundle, hold him close
to my dumpened cheek.
He nuzzles my neck,kisses my tears. It's
true love at first sight.
Not to replace the one who's gone; another
who needs my love and care.
My eyes are drawn upwards to see a Rainbow
Bridge in radiating light.
