Beyond the Rainbow Bridge

by David Kai Amateur

SONG LYRICS

The day that I first met you, I held you in the palm of my hand
And from that moment onward I knew that we would be the best of friends
And though you started as a Christmas gift to set beneath the tree
You know you really were a gift from God to me.

We walked through fields and forests, we’d hit the trail in sun and wind and rain
When I was at my lowest you licked my hand and raised me up again
But time passed much too quickly, and you know just what you did
You took a piece of my broken heart, beyond the rainbow bridge.

I’m not sure what heaven’s like , I’m not sure how things will be
But if we won’t be together, it won’t feel like heaven to me
But if the Lord be willing, I’ll hear your welcome bark again,
And see you running to me, through the golden fields of grain

Most faithful of companions, you’d been with me in sickness and in health
You always loved to see me, even when I couldn’t really love myself
And when you licked my hand that one last time, then you know just what you did
You took a piece of my broken heart, beyond the rainbow bridge.
You took a piece of my broken heart, beyond the rainbow bridge.

DESCRIPTION
A song for those grieving the loss of a pet, especially those whose pets support them through issues such as PTSD and depression. The death of a pet is certainly one the most difficult things that pet lovers experience. Pets offer us companionship, affection and healing, but their relatively short lifespan means that we may experience this loss many times in our lives. Many of us take comfort in the idea of a rainbow bridge that our pets cross when they die, and that we too will cross to be united with our pets. This song expresses the grief that we experience with the death of a pet, but also the hope that we will be reunited with them one day. The vocals for this song are supplied by friend Walter Gallant, a musician originally from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.
