The Making of Rainbow Bridge
Take a grey and murky sky and wash it with some rain,
it will leave a clear blue canvas, for Nature to make a lane
She'll gather some flowers from the meadow , of every shade and hue
and also pluck some grass so green where once the daisies grew.
Then choose the flowers one by one and place in a golden dish
add Angel's tears, some fairy dust, blessing each one with a wish.
She'll take some fronds of feathery grass and bind them with some fleece
that will be the paintbrush, to create her masterpiece
she'll dip the paintbrush into the dish and sweep it across the sky
A beautiful arc of many colours where Fairies and Angels fly
She'll sprinkle it with memories and happiness around
Nowhere in this beautiful place will sadness ever be found.
She''l call the animals one by one , when their life on Earth is through
To meet old friends who've long gone and make others anew
All pain and sorrow will be swept aside , and happiness will be reborn
Games and fun and loving kindness in future be the norm .
It will be named as Rainbow Bridge , and is just a waiting place
for pet and master to meet again when they come face to face.
So ye on Earth who have loved and lost a dear departed pet
Take heart to know that someday......you will meet again
They will not forget.
