Rainbow Bridge x

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.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had 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 to them, who had to be 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 quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally 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 the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Every time I hear this song I have a vision of that place over the Rainbow with hundreds of goldens, in heaven. With a heavy heart but proud, I know one of them is mine, my Buddy. Love you and miss you my Bud.

Thanks for posting the song, it's so very special to us. You're so right about there being a place over the rainbow where all the special goldens are that we have lost. They will always be with us, not in the way we would like...but they're still around in spirit I'm sure of it!

I've heard this song many times and never gave it much thought to the meaning of the words. Now when I listen to it, I think of my beloved Rhett playing and waiting for us at the Rainbow Bridge.

Youtube has apparently taken the videos off of their site however I did find one version with lyrics that was still posted.

Thanks for posting.

I can't beleive that the Rainbow Bridge Fable was only posted on this site 17 hours before Honey died. I find that eerie. I figured it had ALWAYS been here.

It was, but at that time a special Rainbow Bridge thread was created.
This was also posted not long ago (thanks mylissyk).

How surreal. A few years ago a very old and dear friend of mine lost her husband suddenly to a heart attack. He was a prominent figure at NBC news. I attended the funeral in DC at the Kennedy Center. Walking out of the service this song was played and outside there was a double rainbow stretching across the skyline of the national monuments. One of the most awe inspiring moments I've ever witnessed.
Thanks for posting that BMF. Made me smile.
RIP Tim
