T'was the night before Christmas, at the Rainbow Bridge too
We Bridge kids were thinking, as always, of you
We'd seen how the holidays weren't bright this year
Heard you whisper so often, "I wish you were here"

We know how you wish you could just stay in bed
And sleep through the holiday lying ahead
When all celebrate with their loved ones so near...
Unless they have loved one on this side this year

But we're no less alive here, on the other side
If you could just see us, you would've laughed and not cried
The dogs all in harness, pulling the sleigh
The cats all in Santa hats pointing the way

The pet birds all flying back over the rainbow
Bound homeward in spite of Earth's darkness and snow
All the pets that you've lost, pets for whom you've cried
Flying home on this Christmas to be by your side

If you feel warm fur brush you when no pet's around
Hear a soft bark or purr, just a ghost of a sound
We're trying to tell you we're visiting this way
And our visits, even rainbows, can be on any day

But for Christmas we have something special to do
A sleigh full of happy dream visits for you
On doggy, on kitty, on winged friend and ferret!
The love that you lavished, we mean now to share it!

We're fetching that love home, the way we once played
With the closeness we shared and the memories we made
Our Earth lives with you were too short for us, too
And on this Christmas Eve, we have so much to do

So all through this night as you sleep in your beds
Sweet visions of fur babies dance in your heads
This one special night we can bring you Home for awhile
Your true home in Heaven, where again you will smile

Over the Rainbow you'll fly, for a short while this night
Hours that you'll be happy, hours that will feel right
Hours to cuddle and kiss us, to run and to play
Before the return to Earth in our magic way
