Merry Christmas was not to be had for our family
We were all sitting by the tree rather unhappily.
One of our cats passed away a few days before Christmas this year
We felt no joy, gone was the holiday cheer.
Her best friend, a black cat, would sleep by the sparkle of ornaments and lights
Quietly mourning and grieving for several nights.
She too was contemplating our beloved cat who was so dear to us all
And the fond memories all of us would recall.
Then one night we saw the black cat give a glass angel a kiss
We knew then that something between heaven and earth must exist.
That kiss was the most wonderful Christmas gift
Which has given our hearts a lift.
It helped us to again feel love
With the help of the up above
Our cat was with us once more, in our Christmas dreams.
