Request From Rainbow BridgeWeep not for me though I am gone
Into that gentle night.
Grieve if you will, but not for long
Upon my soul’s sweet flight.
I am at peace, my soul’s at rest
There is no need for tears.
There is no pain, I suffer not,
The fear now all is gone.
Put now these things out of your thoughts
In your memory I live on.
Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife
Please do not dwell upon my death,
But celebrate my life.
Four Feet In HeavenYour favorite chair is vacant now
No eager purrs to greet me
No softly padded paws to run
Ecstatically to meet me
No coating rubs, no plaintive cry
Will say it’s time for feeding
I’ve put away your bowl
And all the things you won’t be needing
But I will miss you, little friend
For I could never measure
The happiness you brought me,
The comfort and the pleasure.
And since God put you here to share
In earthly joy and sorrow
I’m sure there will be a place for you
In Heaven’s bright tomorrow…
