The Rainbow Bridge

Now I Must Go

  Send me to the Bridge I pray,
When I no longer run and play.
When my limbs can't bear my weight,
And dignity is stripped by fate.

Look into my eyes, you'll find,
I will let you know, it's time.
You must help me from this edge,
Now it's time, I make this pledge.
I leave you for the Bridge today,
Anew, I run, I bark, I play.

We shared a life of many things,
And to your heart my leaving brings,
The pain of loss, I feel it too,
But Master, know, this I must do.
I must leave first, to make the way,
For you to follow me someday.

Beyond the sunset, where all pain ends,
We'll meet again, the best of friends.
Just as I snuggled in your heart,
You're in mine too, we aren't apart.
I watch you from afar and pray,
It's time to heal, heal some each day.

Please dry those tears and smile for me,
And know at last, that I am free.
There is no pain or suffering there,
The sun shines brightly everywhere.
There isn't even one cross look,
It's not allowed here in His book.

No clouds of gray will gather here,
No storms will ever threaten.
We are at peace here,
And the Bridge is Heaven!

If tears could build a stairway

  If tears could build a stairway
And memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to heaven
And bring you back again.

No farewell words were spoken.
No time to say "Goodbye".
You were gone before I knew it
And only God knows why.

My heart still aches with sadness
And secret tears still flow.
What it meant to love you -
No one can ever know.

But now I know you want me
To mourn for you no more:
To remember all the happy times.
Life still has much in store.

Since you'll never be forgotten,
I pledge to you today -
A hollowed place within my heart
Is where you'll always stay.
