DON’T GRIEVE TOO LONG
Don’t grieve too long for now I’m free
I swished my tail and left it all.
I could not stay another day
To meow, to love, to romp or play
Games left unplayed must stay that way
My parting has left you with a void
Please feel it with remembered joy
Oh yes, these things I too shall miss
Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow
My life’s been full, you’ve given so much
Your time, your love and gentle touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief
