The Rainbow Bridge
There is a place between heaven and earth.
It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors.
Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge is a land of meadows,
hills and valleys, all of it covered with lush green grass.
When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this lovely land.
There, the old and frail animals are young again.
Those who are maimed are made whole once more. They
play all day with each other, content and comfortable.
There is only one thing missing:
They are not with their special person who loved them on Earth
So each day they run and play until the day comes
when suddenly one stops playing and looks up!
Then the nose twitches! The ears are up! The eyes are staring!
You have been seen, and that one suddenly runs from the group!
You take him or her in your arms and embrace
Your face is kissed again and again and again,
and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet.
Then, together, you cross the Rainbow Bridge,
never again to be separated.
