One Year.

last ride together.

The Rainbow Bridge

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.

  3. Sniffing back the tears...have only experienced this loss thru my daughter and her beloved Henny...but oh, did it hurt. Every time I ride around the galloping track - I look over to where he is buried and remember.

  4. This post killed me. I haven't read the rainbow bridge since way before I lost my red pony.
    Your red boy was beautiful.

  6. I miss my Belle horse. This makes me think of her. They are always with us no matter how much times passes.

If you can't say anything nice, fuck off.
