Don't grieve for me for now I'm free

I'm following the path God laid for me.

I took his hand when I heard him call;

I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day,

To meow to love or to play.

Tasks left undone must stay that way;

I found that place at the close of the day.


If my parting has left a void,

Then fill it with remembered joy.

A friendship shared a meow a kiss;

Ah yes these things I too will miss.


Be not burdened with times of sorrow

I wish you the sunshine of tommorrow,


My life's been full I savored much;

Good friends good times,

a loved ones touch.


Perhaps my time seems all to brief;

Don't lenghten it now with undue grief.

Lift up your heart and share with me,

God wanted me now He set me free.
