有一座橋連接天堂與人間,

它有著繽紛的色彩,因此被稱作「彩虹橋」。

天堂的另一邊是個稱作彩虹橋的地方

如果愛戀的寵物走了,牠會來到彩虹橋

那兒有草原和山丘給我們最特別的同伴,讓他們可以一起自由奔跑和遊玩。

那兒有充足的食物水和陽光,使我們的朋友舒適溫飽。

曾經病老的牠們,再度強壯活潑起來,曾經受傷殘廢的牠們,會恢復健康完好,就想我們日復一日殷殷切切的思念那樣。

牠們過得幸福又滿足,不過唯一有個小小的遺憾,每隻動物都想念留下的那個特別的人。

牠們總是在一起奔跑玩耍,但是會有一天,牠們其中會有一個忽然安靜下來,明亮的眼睛開始專注凝望著遠方,身體熱切地顫抖起來,然後突然從同伴群中跑開,飛奔過綠草地,越跑越快,越跑越快。

那是因為牠看見你了,當你終於和特別的朋友相遇,你們緊緊抱在一起,沉浸在重逢的喜悅中,再也不會分開。快樂的吻如雨點一般落在你的臉上,你的手再次撫摸牠可愛的小腦袋,你再一次深深地注視牠忠實的雙眼,牠在你的生活中消失了這麼久,卻從未在你的心中缺席。

然後,你們會一起跨越彩虹橋,從此永遠不再分開。

 

Over the Rainbow Bridge (彩虹橋 原文)

There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of Rainbow Bridge is a special land.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills and valleys with lush green grass for all of our special friends, so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food and water and sunshine, and our friends are warn and comfortable. All the animals who have 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 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. The bright eyes are intent, the nose twitches and the eager body quivers. Suddenly, this one breaks away from the group, flying over the green grass, legs carrying them 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 the Rainbow Bridge together...
