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 plently of food, water,and sunshine,
and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the 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 gone by.
The animals are happy and content,
except for one small thing;
they each miss someone
very special to them,
who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together,
but the day comes when
one suddenly stops and looks
in 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 you life
but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
