A Farewell to My Feline Friend

Cherishing Memories of Unconditional Love

In the hushed moments of that solemn day,

My cherished cat began her fading sway.

Eyes once alive now dimmed, worn and frayed,

Illness gripped her in its relentless raid.

Her soft purr, a cherished, treasured tune,

Now muted by pain, a whisper's croon.

I held her tight, my heart torn apart,

Time stealing away her gentle art.

The vet's solemn words weighed heavy, so drear,

A harsh diagnosis, a burden to bear.

Prayers for moments, for time to freeze,

To cling to her, to embrace memories with ease.

Through the years, her presence filled

Every nook of our sacred space, skilled

In weaving bonds, friendships so true,

Now her absence brings a sorrow anew.

In those final moments, by her side I'd dwell,

Whispering love as daylight's spell

Faded away. Her breaths, a vanishing song,

As she bid adieu and journeyed along.

Tears fell like a downpour, a heavy rain,

Loss unleashing an unbearable pain.

Yet woven in memories, her spirit thrives,

A cherished life that forever survives.

Now, in quiet nights and morning dew's spray,

I sense her presence, her love at bay.

Though she departed on that tearful day,

Her paw prints in my heart will forever stay.
