The Rainbow Bridge

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.

My friend Mike Campeau sent me this and I had to share it with everyone who has lost a pet. Yesterday at the shelter a mommy dog gave birth to 6 puppies but one of them was dead and it made me real sad he never had a chance to run in play in this life. I think about my dog I lost a few years ago and how much I miss her. My friend Mike is also missing his best friends my heart goes out to him love ya buddy!

    I have a ten year old and a two year old. And every time I see the ten year old getting older or slowing down it kills me to think about the future. I've had him since he was six weeks old.
