Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day ~ In the Blink of an Eye


You were gone in the blink of an eye
And all I could ask God is "WHY?"

An angel on earth who deserved so much more
Our time was too short - your loss cut to the core

I have to believe we'll be together again
Even though I don't know the where or the when

Until then my heart aches for you night and day
My love still lives on - it will never go away.



ABOUT RAINBOW BRIDGE REMEMBRANCE DAY:

This special day was created by Deborah Barnes – author, award winning blogger, and cat advocate in tribute to her cat, Mr. Jazz, who she had to say goodbye to on August 28, 2013. She shared the journey of letting him go in her most recent book, “Purr Prints of the Heart: A Cat’s Tale of Life, Death, and Beyond,” a warm and heartfelt book that is written in the wise and comforting voice of Mr. Jazz himself as he shares his life and death journey to offer guidance and understanding through a cat’s perspective as to why sometimes letting a pet go can be the greatest gift you give them.

A special event page for Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day has been created on Facebook so that people can share blog post links, pictures, poems, favorite memories, etc. Please click here for the link.

I really like that poem. Did you write it, Melissa? It is so very hard to lose our fur babies, especially when their lives were short or they had difficult lives. I am here for you if you want to talk - always. Purrs and hugs and love from all of us. <3
