My Old Friend

My Old Friend

I hear the sad news

and then I start to cry.

Your life was like a twinkle

in the sky.

And I know you don’t have

to much longer,

but I know on Wednesday

you’ll be in a better place.

I want you to know

I love you and

I’ll always remember you.

I remember when I was five

we use to get in fights.

I’d grab your tale

but I know you

didn’t mind

because you love me.

In my new cats eyes all

I can see is your beautiful face.

That’s all I

ever see.

Then I think

back to the day

you were infected

with a tumor and

then I think there’s

something I could’ve done

and then i cry.

There is just a couple days left

of your long life.

It seems as when

I hope time goes slow

it goes faster than the speed of light,

but even in heaven

your life will shine on forever.

On Wednesday afternoon you’ll

be in heaven

and a better place.

I want you to know I love you

and I’ll always miss you.
