Sparkling eyes and a beautiful face, she's the wonderful pet we adored,
After 7 whole years of devotion and love we couldn't have asked for more,
But the angels came calling one afternoon and they took our dear Krista away,
No-one knew this would happen; it's just so unfair cos she looked pretty healthy today.

All of a sudden she couldn't stand; her poor legs couldn't take her weight,
As we ran to support her we held our breath and prayed that it wasn't too late.
But the damage was done and we knew it was time, to let go of our darling friend,
After kisses and cuddles and tears galore, we knew she was close to the end.

Heaven opened those gates real wide that night, for our canine forever friend,
They took her too early we weren't prepared, and our hearts will never mend.
Now our home is so empty and we try to cope, no welcome awaits at the door,
No thundering sound running down the stairs as she slides on the wooden floor.

Only silence awaits us now Krista has gone, she's that twinkling star in the sky,
We are trying to make some sense of it all, but all we can do is cry.
Now our beautiful girl has gone for good to that rainbow bridge above,
And we know she is happy and healthy too, cos she knows just how much she was loved.

So we'll say goodnight and sleep sound darling friend,
This is just your beginning; it's not really the end,
Cos when we arrive at those pearly gates,
That's where our beloved Krista awaits.

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.

There are meadows and hills for all of 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 had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; 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 quivers. 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....
