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 of our special friends so they can run
and play together. There is plenty of food and
water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and
comfortable. All the animals who have 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
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 into
the distance. His bright eyes are intent, his eager
body begins to quiver. 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 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
Then together you and
your special pet cross the Rainbow Bridge…

When It's Time?
In my eyes of love and grace,
as color blends my aging face.
As nails may click and I may sway,
know I'll be strong, anew, someday.
How will you know, what will you see?
Me, your soul-dog telling thee ...
Hey Mom or Dad, which ever the case,
my time is near to leave this place.
Don't hold me back, don't make me wait.
Comb me up pretty, I have a date.
We've shared great times, good and bad.
Now let me go and don't be sad ...
Expect you'll shed a tear for me.
That's okay, a few ... maybe.
I'll cuddle close these last few days
so you and I can part our ways ...
I'm crossing to a place so sweet,
soft green and gold beneath my feet.
And friends have I, just waiting there,
With fun and games and treats to share.
So my good friend, we bid farewell,
we'll have so many tales to tell.
And I will never e'er forget ...
'Twas you I saw, when first we met.
Across the Bridge, I
inside your heart a place waits true.
Your arms must gently guide my path
until I reach sweet heaven's mat.
It's been so grand, the time is now ...
A new life waits, it's time I bow!
I'll greet you in time at heaven's door.
Loving you always, ever more ...
