Tar Baby {Tarby} by Sally

You were a birthday present
So tiny black and cute.
You were a lively ball of fur and
To me you were a beaut.

You became my bouncing shadow
My constant companion
Always under my feet
As if we were one.

Your life was full of problems
But we fixed them as we went.
You were my special project
From God you were sent.

I’m sorry you had to suffer
The last few days you were here.
I did the best I could.
Now you can rest without fear.
