Maine Coon Cat
Wasn't it just yesterday you purred and slept by me?
Very loving and gentle as only you could be.
Wasn't it just yesterday you greeted me at the door?
For 12 years your beautiful face I truly did adore.
Wasn't it just yesterday I took you to the vet?
You weren't feeling well but you did not give up yet.
Wasn't it just yesterday we said good-bye my friend?
I heard you purr one last time and held you 'til the end.
Wasn't it just yesterday I felt alone and sad?
My heart so very heavy I miss the bond we had.
Today I'm left with fond memories of my special friend.
I take comfort in knowing that one day we'll be
together forever again.
