Rainbow Bridge Poem

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, 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 remembered them in
our dreams of days and times gone by.

The animals are happy and content,
except for one small things;
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 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...

About the Poem

It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass.

When a beloved pet dies, the pet does to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. The old and frail pets are made young again. Those who are maimed are made whole again and they play all day.

There is only one things 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 looks up. The nose twitches! The ears are up! The 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 them in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again, and you look once more into the eyes of your trusted friend.

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