A piece of my heart went to heaven today.
This house seems so empty and still.
For there is a place in my heart and my soul,
That none of your siblings can fill.
13 years, 6 months and a few days, long ago
When I had extra love to share.
I met you among many cats living alone
Just waiting for someone to care.
I crouched down to the floor to meet one of your friends
And you crawled right up into my arm.
No matter how many times I looked at other cats there
You made it clear that you had the most charm.
So when anyone asks, I admit to the fact
That YES, you're the one who picked me.
So even if I had wanted to adopt someone else
You can't fight what is meant to be.
You lived a long life, 19 years plus some more
And while you were here, you knew love.
What more could you ask for, what more could I give
Than to send you home to our Lord up above.
Please wait for me, and I will see you again, one fine day.
