At A Funeral

At a funeral we, are sad, cry, say goodbye. At a funeral we, hear the music play, listen to words of condolence, say prayers, revel over birds singing. At a funeral we, see the beautiful flowers, enjoy the friends, meet with the family, At a funeral we, are just us two, are forever more, dread the day the world ended, rejoice the day you are in heaven. At a funeral we, had to say goodbye, say goodbye to my love, say good bye to my best furry friend, remember the one who was always in the best fur coat, remember the one who was always there, remember the one who always listened to every word, remember the one who is now on the Rainbow Bridge waiting for me. (Fox Face 1987 to 1998) Date Written: 8/7/2020 4 Place All Pets Go To Heaven Contest Judged: 8/24/2020 Sponsored by: Constance La France Note: To the animal lovers, you may want to look up: Rainbow Bridge (pets) - Wikipedia en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rainbow_Bridge_(pets) The Rainbow Bridge is a meadow where animals wait for their humans to join them, and the bridge that takes them all to Heaven, together. The Rainbow Bridge is the theme of several works of poetry written in the 1980s and 1990s that speak of an other-worldly place where pets go upon death, eventually to be reunited with their owners.

Oh Paula, Your poem made me cry. I've lost so many pets through the years. I'm sure they go to Heaven. And, yes, I've read the Rainbow Bridge ~ a beautiful, sad poem.

I like your reflections on funerals... I'm kind of glad myself that I haven't attended any this year, due to COVID... Looking forward to Life and Joy, Gershon
