Little Julie..we lost her to auto-immune
complications at 8 years.
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 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.

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, 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.
