DON’T GRIEVE TOO LONG”
Don’t grieve too long for now I’m free.
I’ve followed the path God set for me.
I ran to Him when I heard His call.
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,
I found such peace; it made my day.
My parting has left you with a void.
Please feel it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, your laugh, a kiss.
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.
Lift up your head and share with me.
God wanted me; He set me free!!
For you Kady,
