There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth
It is called a Rainbow bridge
because of its many colors.
Just this side of the Rainbow bridge
Here is a land of meadows, hills and valleys
with lush green grass.
When a beloved pet dies, they go to this place
there is always food, water and warm spring weather.
Those old and frail animals
are young again.
Those who have been maimed
are made whole again.
They play all day to each other.
But 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 starring...
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
Your face is kissed again
And again you look once more in the eyes
of your thrusting pet.
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together
never to be separated.
Poem by Paul C. Dahm
