RAINBOW BRIDGE

It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors.
Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows,
hills and valleys with lush green grass.

When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place.
There is always food and water and warm spring weather.
The old and frail pets are made young again.
Those who are maimed are made whole again and they play all day.
There is only one thing missing.

They are not with their special person who loved them on earth.
Each day they run and play until the day comes when one suddenly looks up.
The nose twitches! The ears are up!
The eyes are staring! And this one suddenly runs from the group!
You have been seen and when you and your special friend meet,
you take them in your arms and embrace.

Your face is kissed again and again,
and you look once more into the eyes of your trusted friend.
And you cross the Rainbow Bridge together,
never again to be separated.
