Samson


6 weeks ago


We cooked you some mince meat,
You loved it so much,
But your look said, enough is enough.

We cried all night,
Till the morning came,
Tried to get you up,
But you fell again,
Your hips are arching and your energy is gone.

The Vet came around,
We where hoping for magic,
But all hope was gone.

Lying in the garden in your favourite spot,
The sun was shining,
As you took your last breath,
We were right there,
Cuddling your furry hair.

We had to let you go, my friend,
We love you so much,
You left a big hole in our hearts and it hurts so much.

We are so lonely without you now,
It drives us insane,
But you gave use a sign and we thank you so much,
The three rainbows, on the day you died.

The rainbows told us,
You are painless, happy and fine.

Samson ,we love you,
Missing your happy face, big brown eyes and your waggle tail.
We can still feel you, where ever you are,
But one day we will be back together again
And we will dance again all night.

We will love you for ever,
We will never forget you.

Lots of love and kisses
Mum & Dad

I am not a writer, but this is my story, about my beautiful boy Samson. We walked for 11 ½ years together, we enjoyed every day. The 3 rainbows really showed, I was not a believer but I believe in it now. 4 weeks later my friend came around and told us about Rainbow Bridge. We knew nothing about it, but now we believe.





Rainbow Bridge



Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
