Rainbow Bridge Poem
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes
to Rainbow Bridge.
animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; 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.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly 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 green 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 the 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.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
I have sent
you on a journey to a land free from pain,
not because I did not love you,
but because I loved you too much to force you to stay.
