Gem by Jane

He came to me an unpolished stone
Preferring to be left alone.
It took awhile to form our bond
I never knew I’d grow so fond.

But quickly then he’d steal my heart
And I promised him we’d never part
So they tell me you’re not really gone
It’s just your soul that’s moving on.

To a better place is what they say
Where angels fly and kitties play
But our family grieves and misses Gem
And I feel in my heart that he misses them.
