The Rainbow Bridge

By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill
Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.
Where the friends of man and woman do run,
When their time on earth is over and done.

For here, between this world and the next
Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest
On this golden land, they wait and they play,
Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day

No more do they suffer in pain or in sadness
For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness
Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,
Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued

They romp through the grass, without even a care,
Until one day they start, and sniff the air
All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,
Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack

For just at that instant, their eyes have met
Together again, both person and pet
So they run to each other, these friends from long past
The time of their parting is over at last

The sadness they felt while they were apart
Has turned into joy once more in each heart
They embrace with a love that will last forever
And then, side by side, they cross over - together.
