Missing Our Friend

Skies are dark and dreary,
This day we won't forget;
Ol' Ollie was our favorite,
Far more than just a pet

A naughty lil' imp,
Knock-kneed and proud;
Meowin' like a siren,
Geez, that cat was loud!

It was on this frigid morning,
We lost our furry friend;
Reality's stunning anguish,
Death fails to comprehend

Spoiled rotten and witty,
You'd swear he was a dog;
A happy treat to pacify,
While sleeping like a log

Looking on the good days,
Diminished are the bad;
We lost a friend forever,
The best we've ever had

Death never comforts,
We failed to see your end;
Our tears concede to obscurity,
Farewell to a loyal friend...

    Thanks Barbara! Our cat was just shy of six. He went so fast. He became lethargic and vomited several times over the weekend. I thought he'd ate something that didn't agree with him. We took him to our vet early that Monday morning where he died within a matter of minutes. We have two other cats. But Oliver was our favorite. Thanks again!...Milt
