When I was young
I wept so much
No one could feal my pain
I hoped for a miracle
To make me smile again

The wish came to be
Not through love so true
but in the gesture of giving
As found in pet rescue

Every furry body
Brought me happiness and love
As if God had chosen me himself
And blessed me with their love

People often scoffed at me
And riddled me with scorn
Sometimes I had to wonder why
I was ever born

I loved each little kitty,
Every one the same
Each one a special color
Each one a special name

When I pass to the other side
No children mourn me here
But many friends, all of whom
I feel are oh so dear

At heaven’s gates in splendor
The portals open wide
And there, hundreds of furry kitties,
Playing there inside

I pick up a tiny baby
And hold him to my heart
We never met each other
but of each other we are part

In lofty rooms as I pass by
I see kitties everywhere
They venture up and touch me
With appreciation that they share

The tears I shed so long ago
Are lessened now in peace
I know the trials I faced on earth
Now will surly cease

Everything is beautiful
No cat is thrown away
I think I will love it there
a purrfect place to stay!
