                  IF IT SHOULD BE

     

    If it be I grow frail and weak, And pain should wake me from my sleep, Then you must do what must be done, For this last battle canít be won.

    You will be sad, Iíll understand, Donít let your grief then stay your hand, For this day more than all the rest, Your love and friendship stand the test.

    Weíve had so many happy years, What is to come will hold no fears, Youíll not want me to suffer, so, When the time comes, please let me go.

    I know in time, you too will see, It is a kindness you do me, Although my tail its last has waved, From pain and suffering, Iíve been saved.

    Do not grieve that it should be you, Who has to decide this thing to do. Weíve been so close, we two, these years, Donít let your heart hold any tears.

 

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.When an animal dies that has been especially close to some-one here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all 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 have been ill and old are restored to health and vigour; 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 begins to quiver. 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...-- Anon. --
