By the edge of a wood at the foot of a hill is a lush green meadow where time stands still. Where the friend 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 and 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 with not even a care until one day they 'start' and sniff the air. Then all of a sudden one breaks from the pack, for just an instant their eyes have met, together once more 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 from the heart. They embrace with a love that will last forever and then side by side they cross over together.
