Stitches by Dufour


" Stitches "

July 10 1993 --------- May 14 1995


Your favorite chair is vacant now

no eager purrs to greet me,

No softly padded paws to run

quietly to meet me.


No coaxing rubs,no plaintive cry

will say it's time for feedinng,

I've put away your bowl and

all the things you won't be needing


But I will miss you little friend

for I could never measure,

The happiness you brought to me

the comfort and the pleasure.


And since God put you here to share

in earthly joy and sorrow,

I know there will be place for you

in heavon's bright tomorrow.
