Dogs who are waiting at the rainbow bridge are honored below.

The Rainbow Bridge
-by Steve & Diane Bodofsky

By the edge of a wood, 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 beloved dogs find rest.
On this golden land, they wait and play,
‘til 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 to joy once more in each heart.
They embrace with a love that will last forever,
and then, side-by-side, they cross over…together.
