Pet Stories: In Your Own Words
The nights are always hardest
since you went beyond my reach.
The endless tears keep falling now
this grief I can not breach.
Sweet memories of happy times
wash in and flood my mind.
No other cat has touched my heart
and opened theirs in kind.
You came to me an orphaned soul
who had so much to share.
Your spunk, your sass, your love for life
showed just how much you cared.
I wish I had you back again
if only for a second.
To know that you're at peace and close
should I feel the need to beckon.
I have a message to send to you that you are truly missed.
It comes from Lumpy, Nika too and don't forget Yaps.
Come visit on a lazy day and do what Mommy loves,
curl up beneath the covers for our naughty late day naps.
Don't worry friend you're never far
I keep you close at hand.
You'll bloom each year in our front yard
beside you I will stand.
