Request From Rainbow Bridge – poem

dog night moon howl

dog night moon howl

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 so 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.

Shadow’s Song – poem

stars rocks

stars rocks

I’m not gone…not really.
I haven’t gone away…I’ve only gotten bigger.
My eyes, so bright, now shine among the stars.
My voice sings with the wind in winter, as I leap
And dance among the tree tops.

I stalk the blown leaves in autumn, and brush the
Flowers gently in the spring.
I come to you in dreaming, on feet grown dreamtime soft,
And lay my cheek against yours, and whisper:
“Peace be with you.”

Someday we will play again together, you and I, among the stars.
‘Til then, fear not to love, for your love gave my life meaning.
And I return that love to you…a hundredfold…a thousandfold…
