The Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.

All the animals who have been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special, someone who was left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly, he breaks from the group, flying over the green grass, faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into those trusting eyes, so long gone from life, but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together...

No wonder it's on my favorites list!

Thank you so much for sharing this. I have the printed version but this slide show one is excellent.
I have a friend who lost their older rottie to cancer a few days after Christmas. They are having a real rough time and I am sure we all can understand their feelings of grieving.
I am in hope this wonderful slide show will help them .

Thank you again for sharing this.

I love, love, love this poem. Years ago a friends dog past away so I went online for a poem to help ease her pain and I found Rainbow Bridge. Ever since then any one who loses a beloved family member (their pet) I post this poem online and it always tugs at their heart and they love it.
