|I Am With You Always|
|When I am gone, release me, let me go.
You have so many things to see and do,
You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears.
Be happy that we had such good years.
|I gave you my love, you can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
But now is time I travel alone.
|So grieve a while for me if you must
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for a while that we must part
So treasure the memories within your heart.
|I won't be far away, for life goes on.
So if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near
And if you listen with your heart you'll hear
All my love around you soft and clear.
And then when you must come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and welcome home.
|Do not stand by my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am a diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awake in the morning hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starshine at night.
|Do not stand by my grave and cry
I am not there... I did not die.
|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 our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine. Our friends are warm and comfortable.|
|All the animals who had been ill and were old have been restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days gone by. The animals are happy except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had been 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.|
|Suddenly he begins to run from the group, his legs carrying him faster and faster.|
|You have been spotted and when you and your special friend 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.......|
|Go back and see the rest!|
