    Is there a song that really gives you peace and makes you think of your friend at Rainbow Bridge?


    For my dog Princess (toy poodle) who passed 3 years ago (4 years this may) I have a song. I'll tell you not a day goes by that I don't think of her. She is always with me. 3 years and I am still greiving but it got better.....the first year was hard. It got easier the next year and now I miss her but it doesn't hurt as bad.

    But I'm still homesick

    The song is

    "Homesick" by Mercy Me

    You're in a better place, I've heard a thousand times
    And at least a thousand times I've rejoiced for you
    But the reason why I'm broken, the reason why I cry
    Is how long must I wait to be with you

    I close my eyes and I see your face
    If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
    Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
    I've never been more homesick than now

    Help me Lord cause I don't understand your ways
    The reason why I wonder if I'll ever know
    But, even if you showed me, the hurt would be the same
    Cause I'm still here so far away from home

    I close my eyes and I see your face
    If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
    Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
    I've never been more homesick than now

    In Christ, there are no goodbye
    And in Christ, there is no end
    So I'll hold onto Jesus with all that I have
    To see you again
    To see you again

    And I close my eyes and I see your face
    If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
    Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
    Won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
    Won't you give me strength to make it through somehow

    I've never been more homesick than now




    Do you have a song? I cried the first time I heard this song. I heard it the day after she passed.

    I do too, it encompasses all my passed pets.

    Lonestar - I'm already there.

    Now whether or not I make it "there" is questionable though, lol.

    Circle of Life- Elton John, for one of my dogs

    For My heart dog.............there is another "Lonestar" song- the one by Norah Jones
    I imagine singing it to her, and she will shine down from wherever she is
