THE RAINBOW BRIDGE
By the edge of the woods, at a 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 the 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 at the air.
All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back.
Than 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 friend from long past,
the time of their parting is over and 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.
