“Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge” – William N. Britton
The Legend of Rainbow Bridge by William N. Britton
“Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge
When a pet dies who has been especially close to a person here on earth, that pet goes to a Rainbow Bridge.
There are beautiful meadows and grassy hills there for all our special friends so they can run and play together.”
……. “The pets we loved are happy and content except for one small thing.
Each one misses someone very special who was left behind.
……. All at once they break away from the group, flying like a deer over the grass, their little legs carrying them faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you hug and cling to them in joyous reunion, never to be parted again.
……. You look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet so long gone from your life, but never gone from your heart…..”
The Legend of Rainbow Bridge was published in 1994 by William N Britton.
Those who have lost a pet, may have heard of the Rainbow Bridge. This bridge is a mythical overpass said to connect heaven and Earth and is a place where grieving pet owners reunite with their departed furry friends.
The verse refers to the spiritual lives of pets and their place in heaven, re-united with their owners.
