We Had to Say Goodbye

The Rainbow Bridge

inspired by a Norse legend

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.

Good-bye for now Sadie!
Run and play HAPPY
And run and play FREE
Until we see you at Rainbow Bridge

I am so sorry to hear about Sadie. I know she is in a better place, but I also know that those words mean nothing to you right now. Tears will flow for days, weeks, even months. You will see some little thing that will bring back a memory, you'll laugh, then you'll cry. It's hard to lose someone so close, your friend, your family. But you have other family that needs you now, that will keep you going. ~~~hugs~~~
