The Rainbow Bridge Poem

Dhicon_thumb By DogHeirs Team | November 12, 2013 | Comments (3)

dog in the clouds

There is a bridge connnecting Heaven and Earth. It is called Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors.

Just this side of Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys and lush green grass. When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food, water and warm spring weather.

The old and frail animals are young again. Those who had been hurt or maimed are made whole again. They play all day with each other.

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 one suddenly stops playing and looks up. The nose twitches. The ears are up. The eyes are staring. And this one runs from the group. You have been seen!

And when you and your special friend meet you take him or her in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again and again. You look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated.
