The Rainbow Bridge
Author Unknown


Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. This bridge is connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors.  

Just this side there are meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass for all our special friends, as they can run and play together.  

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to the Rainbow Bridge.  There is always plenty of food, water and sunshine and warm spring weather.  

The old and frail animals are young again.  Those who are 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!  They eyes are staring! And this one suddenly 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 and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet.  

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