Rainbow Bridge

The Rainbow Bridge
inspired by a Norse legend
 

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 at 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.

Riley is greatly missed. He was such a good and quiet boy, he just wanted to be loved on a few times a day and to eat his meals.  So content and happy!!

Staddler boy has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He was a great companion and he will be greatly missed. I never took him out for a walk that someone didn't comment on what a beautiful dog he was. Thank you to TAGS for  bringing him into my life.  Debbie
