There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth.
It's called the Rainbow Bridge
because of its many colours.
Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge, there is a land of meadows, hills,
and valleys with lush green grass.
When beloved pets die, they go to this place.
There is always food and water and
warm spring weather,
the old and frail are young again,
those who are maimed are made whole.
They play all day long,
with only one thing missing...
they are not with the 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.
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 you look once more into the eyes of your
trusting and beloved friend.
Then together you cross the Rainbow Bridge, never again to be separated.
