Your warmth and passion Sealed my path But a few short years later cancer Changed both our paths But I'm here - you're not There is no sense to that No warm words of consolation No bright side A light has gone from here I hope it's burning brightly again Free from pain and distress Laughter its language Rest in peace with loud purrs x
