sad poem

Weep Not for Me

Far above the sad dark Earth,

I have found my place in the sky,

I would be completely happy,

But I see the sadness in your eyes.

I know I was your special cat,

And that you loved me so,

I heard the breaking of your heart,

But still, I had to go.

I remember our walks in the sun,

The way you would pet my head,

How you worried when I was out at night

Until I was safe in bed.

I heard you pray to God,

You begged Him to let me stay.

It was not the Maker's fault,

I had to go away.

Look around and you will see

I am never far from you and your love.

I stand here at the edges of Heaven,

Watching over you from above.

Please don't spend your time

Mourning me early and late

For I opened my eyes and beheld wonder

Standing at Heaven's gate.

Don't blame yourself for what had to be

We had together three happy years.

Let my tribute be your laughter,

Stain not my memory with tears.

I am better now, Mistress,

If only you could see,

I am happier than I had even hoped

For your love's light wings did carry me.

Your care made my days a Heaven,

Your compassion did set me free,

And though I am at the feet of the Maker-

My love will forever with you be.
