Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday



We are so thankful to be starting the Alphabet ALL over again with “A” this week – thanks to all of you who wanted to continue this poetic fun and start over!   You can Click Brian’s badge above to join the THANKFUL Blog Hop!


Hello poetry fans!   Here we go again with the alphabet starting obviously with the letter “A”!


Now that I’m an Angel

I want you all to know

The Rainbow Bridge is beautiful

AND we never get any snow!

It’s sunny, bright and cheery

We’re happy as can be

There’s nothing but God’s beauty

Far as the eye can see.

We spend our days doing good things

We help out back at home

We try to remind our families

That they are not alone.

We know that we were truly blessed

To be part of your family

But our time did come and we were so tired

Our souls longed to be free.

We’ll always be there with you

We’ve loved you from the start

If you sit very quietly, you’ll hear us in your heart.

We’ll wait here until you join us

Arriving at the gate light as a feather

Then we will all be happy

Because we’ll be TOGETHER.

Did you write a poem today for “A”?   If you did and want to share it, please leave your blog link in my comments so we can all go visit and read your poem OR just post your poem here in my comments and we’ll read it here!    I’m so excited to be starting the whole alphabet again…………..and who knows – maybe we’ll do it AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN!

Also in the coming days Mom is going to try to share more of the things you sweeties sent in to her when I left for the Bridge………they are just too beautiful NOT to share……..don’t be sad… happy because we kitties love Christmas time and even though some of us are gone we will definitely enjoy watching you back here opening presents and making a big old mess with wrapping paper and stuff OK???


Je Suis Sammy le Poet!!  Merci Beaucoup!!

Oh Mon Amis I forgot to tell you something fabulous.   You know I’m a Cat Scout (now Angel Cat Scout) and I was HONORED to discover that there are now special items in the Cat Scouts Store with my fabulous face/artwork done by the Denmaster at Scouts!!!!   That’s right – and you don’t have to be a Scout to order them or anything else in the store – so take a peek.   I love the drawing of ME……………Thank you Denmaster for honoring me!

  1. That poem … AMAZING. Wow. Tears are running down my face … thank you for sharing that piece of beauty. The holidays can be so hard in terms of missing the people and cats we’ve lost, but this is the perfect reminder that they are still with us.


  2. 👼🏼 Sammy…oh my word! Wow your mom has purely and quite beautifully given us the visual we all imagined fir THE RAINBOW BRIDGE‼️each day we have visited you all these years we could feel love and devotion in every word she wrote.

    I am still a tad embarrassed that my mom once called you…one soiled cat….but in the end we all got a good MOL. MOL MOL a missing letter makes a big difference!
    Hugs Madi your bfffffff and spelling challenged mom

    • Yes…..we all live in a very thinly defined space – one that allows us to move back and forth in time and place………your Angel kitties visit you too – just watch your cats and you’ll see that THEY see us. Those stares in empty corners – the dilated pupils and alert postures…….WE ARE THERE!

      Love and Angel Hugs, Sammy


  4. Oh Sammy, that is such a beautiful poem. It made my mum cry again, but I told her that she should be happy that we have such a beautiful place we go to while we wait to be re-united with our families.


      • NO that’s right – you are NOT here at the Bridge……………and hopefully not here for a long time to come. Just know that when you do come, I’ll be here with Eric by the gate……………

        Love and Big Angel Hugs, Sammy


    • Yes indeed Flynn… day when you join me here (a long time from now!) they will probably make us official BRIDGE BOOKENDS….HAHAHA…..but until then, just love your Mom and Dad and stay with them for a whole lot longer because they adore you………very much!

      Love, Angel Sam


  5. I like this poem, Angel Sammy. Makes me think of all our kitties that have gone to the Rainbow Bridge and though they are gone it comforts me to think they are happy and waiting for us. I am glad that the Rainbow Bridge is sunny,bright and cheery AND no snow!!!!


    • Snow is absolutely totally UNHEARD of up here. Every day is prettier than the next……….and I’m glad you are comforted knowing we are all here waiting for all of you………..

      Love and Angel Hugs, Sammy


  6. Sammy, that was beautiful. It does are hearts good to know that neither you or Fiona or any of our other friends and fur family who have left before are suffering. It is just very hard to miss you with all our hearts and souls. Here is the link to our post and our angel poem.
    We love you and Mom Pam and Dad David with all our hearts. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo


    • I know how hard it is for all of you – and it’s hard on all of us too……..seeing your sadness and feeling our own. We loved your Angel Poem today…………and we’ve read lots of other really wonderful ones all around the blogosphere too. Makes our hearts happy……………..we love your whole family too!!!!

      Hugs and Angel Kisses, Angel Sammy


    • Aw Austin……’s tough times when you have to move on and when you have to see family and friends sad so I wanted everyone to know that the Bridge is a great place…..and we are always with you – all of you – always!

    • Hi Tabbies! Love your poem……bugs are delicious – I used to hunt them down and have them for a snack in my back yard….I was rather selective though – didn’t eat spiders. YUCK. Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a most incredible new year……..and thank you more than you know for being our extra special good friends!

      Love, Angel Sammy
