This is yet another advantage of conducting a virtual pet memorial, as you will be exposed to such beautiful poetry that will help you relive your special moments with your late pet.
The Rainbow Bridge
Pet memorial stories and poems basically revolve around the Rainbow Bridge, which is a popular phenomenon among people who raise pets. This Rainbow Bridge is signified as a special bridge that connects Earth and Heaven, through which the pets shall pass once they are no more.
The poems constructed around the Rainbow Bridge go on to say that the other end of the bridge, that is, heaven, will have plenty of sunshine, food and water, so that all pets can stay in comfort forever.
‘All the animals that had been ill and old are restored to health and to vigour.
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.’
Tribute to a Best friend
‘Tribute to a Best Friend’ is another very good poem that you can include in your pet memorial service. The poem talks about coping with the loss, and living on in the hope that someday you will meet your pet again.
‘But I'll take that vacant spot of floor and empty muted hall
and lay them with the absent voice and unused dish along the wall.
I'll wrap these treasured memorials in a blanket of my love
and keep them for my best friend until we meet above.’

A Bridge Called Love
You can also take some verses from A Bridge Called Love, which is a very famous poem among pet lovers. This poem is frequently featured in many plaques and pet memorial cards, and it is rich in meaning and conveys people’s emotions effortlessly. The poem is very small as well, and for this reason it can be easily inscribed anywhere necessary.
‘It takes us back to brighter years, to happier sunlit days
and to precious moments that will be with us always.
And these fond recollections are treasured in the heart
to bring us always close to those, from whom we had to part.
There is a bridge of memories from earth to Heaven above...
It keeps our dear ones near us;
it’s the bridge that we call love’

This poem provides an entirely new take on the concept of the Rainbow Bridge and talks about love serving as a bridge between the provinces of Heaven and Earth. These phrases will fill your void, and will help you recover from the loss, although slowly.
