Requiem For Taz

Six months ago, you followed me home,
A tiny, black, and blue-eyed gnome
It was late in September,
I so clearly remember

You moved right on in,
Made friends with your furry kin –
Always alert, in some kind of hurry
Just the sight of you would erase any worry

That shadowed my mind –
Your bright spirit would blind
Me to everything but joy,
My delightful dear boy!

Those short six months you shared
With me and cared for me 
I am so deeply grateful for
And now you’ve passed through Heaven’s door

I thank you so much and cherish
Our time – your gift of joy can never perish
I’m so grateful you chose to be
My friend – you’re forever close to me

I sadly, deeply mourn your passing,
Yet know your life’s a blessing
And I’ll never, ever regret,
Nor can I ever forget

The shining joy you always brought
You’ll live forever in my thought,
So I say, Taz, let’s celebrate
Our love, it’ll never abate

We’ll meet again,
This isn’t the end – 
Save a spot in Heaven
I know we’ll meet again

Yes, save a spot for me, my friend,
My grief will be soon unleavened

So save a spot for me, my friend,
We’ll meet again in Heaven
