The Rainbow Bridge
The hands of time begin to slow
And we know it's time for us to go
Where warm and gentle breezes blow,
Over the rainbow bridge.
Where flowers bloom and rabbits run
And we rest our bones in the midday sun
And all our days are full of fun,
Where birds all sing a happy refrain
And we are all made well again
And never suffer any pain,
I know your love for me runs deep,
But please don't cry, no need to weep,
I'm happy where I rest and sleep,
So don't feel sad I had to go
And leave the ones who loved me so.
I've gone where only good souls go,
You'll join us having lots of fun
When your time on earth is also done,
And we'll wait here for you to come
Weep not for me though I am gone;into that gentle night.Grieve if you will but not for long, upon my soul's sweet flight. I am at peace, my soul's at rest. There is no need for tears. For with your love I was blessed; for all those many years. There is no pain, I suffer not, The fear now all is gone. Put now these things out of your thoughts. In your memory I live on. Remember not my fight for breath; remember not the strife. Please do not dwell upon my death, but celebrate my life.
