Waking to see that you are still near me
Listening to your every breath
Recording the rhythm it has, to my mind
Each stroke brings to mind a memory
Touching your fur and feeling the texture,
Sniffing you and thinking that this is nice
You nudge closer to my face,
As if to say, “I love this”
Everyday is like a goodbye
Looking at your big green eyes
Whispering to you that you are special
Loved and my furbaby for all time
I know in my heart without doubt, your mine
And I am yours
Accepted by a cat, loved by a soul
This is how I see things.
Everyday is a like saying goodbye
Knowing that in time this cancer will win
Knowing that there is a timeline, signalling the end.
It hurts worse than I can say
I have made you a part of everyday
For 15 years now
Still seems so short,
In comparison to all you’ve given me
The love that grew between me and you.
Everyday there is a heartache,
Knowing time draws near
I respond as best I know how
In my actions, words, and care
Sometimes it is just stroking your hair
Everyday it feels like a goodbye
I wonder, do you know?
Can you feel my heart breaking,
As I try little by little to let you go?
Do you want me to make things better?
I would if I could.
I want to so badly.
Love is hard when you have to let go
The loving you part is easy
Letting you go is like losing a part of myself when,
Everyday is saying goodbye,
Everyday I feel the need to cry
I want to pretend just a while longer,
I know I need to capture each moment,
Each embrace needs to be remembered.
The good and fun times with you,
Are they what’s going to be pull me through?
For you however, your spirit will soar!
Although you will not be near me anymore.
Everyday is hard
But each day that comes is a blessing
Each day with you, my sweet sweet Meow.
