Just this side of heaven is a place called The Rainbow Bridge.
When a greyhound dies that has been especially close to someone here,
that greyhound goes to the Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends,
so they can play and run together.
There is plenty of food, water, and sunshine,
and our greyhounds are warm and comfortable.
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 those in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The greyhounds are happy and content, except for one small thing;
They each miss someone very special to them, who has been left behind.
They all run and play together,
but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance.
Their bright eyes are intent. Their eager body begins to quiver.
Suddenly they begin to run from the group, flying over the green grass.
Their legs carrying them faster and faster.
You have been spotted.
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 greyhound.
So long gone from your life, But never absent from your heart.
