The Rainbow Bridge

”The 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 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 or old are
Restored to health and vigor,
Those who were hurt and maimed
Are made whole and strong again, just as
We remember them in our dreams of days gone by.
These animals are happy and content, except
For one small thing,
They each had someone very special to them
Who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day
Will come when suddenly
One 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 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 that 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.
And then you cross the Rainbow Bridge
Together.
