Gone, but not forgotten
This pain, I cannot hide
In memory, I see you
A million tears, I've cried.
The tender thoughts you left me
Come to my memory
Your loving smile, so precious
Will always be with me.
You visit me in summer
When flowers are in bloom
Upon a ray of sunshine
A star-lit night in June.
When winds are gently blowing
Across a cloudless sky
Within a rolling meadow
Where horse and cattle lie.
I see you in the treetops
As summer comes to be
In shadows, you do linger
A soul so young and free.
I see you in the garden
Your scent does fill the air
Just like a precious flower
A rose, so ever fair.
On country roads, I find you
Along the wooded lane
Within the distant thunder
I see you in the rain.
In early hush of morning
You come without a sound
Upon a blazing sunset
Your memory can be found.
Like sprigs of morning glory
Upon the vine, they grow
With branches reaching outward
Into my heart, you go.
Just like a special angel
God wrapped you in His care
And took you off to heaven
To live with Him, up there.
My Love Is Like A Red Red Rose - Robert Burns
My love is like a red red rose
As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,
And fare thee weel, my only love,
Think Of Me- Andrew Grubersk
I am not gone,
What is Death?
Call me by my old familiar name.
Laugh as we always laughed
Life means all that it ever meant.
I am waiting for you,
All is well.
To everything there is a season,
And a time to every purpose under the heaven.
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck
that which is planted;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to get, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to love, and a time to hate;
A time of war, and time of peace.
They that love beyond the world
Cannot be separated by it.
Death is but crossing the world,
As friends do the seas;
They live in one another still.
...Grieve not, nor speak of me with tears,
but laugh and talk of me as if I were beside you...
I loved you so - 'twas Heaven here with you.
-Isla Paschal Richardson
There is a bridge connecting Heaven and
Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of
its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow
Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys
with lush green grass. When a beloved pet dies, the
pet goes to this place. There is always food and
water and warm spring weather. The old and frail
animals are young again. Those who are maimed
are made whole again. They play all day with each
other. There is only one thing missing. They are
not with the special person who loved them on Earth.
So, each day they run and play until the day comes
when one suddenly stops playing and looks up!
The nose twitches! The eyes are staring! And this
one suddenly runs from the group. You have been
seen, and when you and your special friend meet,
you take him or her in your arms and embrace.
Your face is kissed again and again, and you look
once more into the eyes of your trusting pet. Then
you cross the Rainbow Bridge together,
never again to be separated.
