River of Dreams – POEM

Dear Human, now, that you’re asleep
there is one promise I cannot keep.
For now, dear please, I must say this
your friendship, it, will be most missed.

1-min

I do remember days gone by
you kept me warm, you kept me dry
you held me close those long long nights
you seemed to like my “love you bites.”

2-min

You gave me food throughout the years
I did my best to dry your tears
You bought me toys, you played with me
there was no end we could foresee.

3-min

When I was down, you held me near
you rubbed my butt, you massaged my ear
You looked for me when you’d get home
from wherever it was, you had to roam.

4-min

So many days you were waited for
I was forever waiting behind that door.
I’d rub my face across your leg …
you always said, “Come on, don’t beg.”

5-min

The years flew by, now here we are
you seem so close but yet so far
We both know I’ve not been myself
spend most times resting on a shelf.

6-min

About that promise I once made
to always love you, to always stay
those unspoken words were just a lie
for the time has come to say goodbye.

7-min

When tomorrow comes I won’t be here
but, please, just carry on, my dear
Don’t be too sad, don’t be like that
you can always adopt a brand new cat.

8-min

I want to say thank you for all you’ve done
we had good times and lots of fun,
remember although I must go, my friend …
our love and memories, never let them end.

9-min

Just know that through our special time
it’s my honor to know that you were mine.
Sorry for the promises I cannot keep.
And now I lay me, down to sleep.

10-min
