Blaze - January 9, 2011
Blaze came to Animalkind for a short time only - she passed with love and compassion.
I will lend you a kitty, God said.
For you to love while she lives and mourn when she's dead.
Maybe for 12 or 14 years or maybe for two or three,
but will you, until I call her back, take care of her for me?
She'll bring her charms to gladden you and should her stay be brief,
you'll always have her memories as solace for grief.
I can not promise she will stay since all from earth return,
but there are lessons taught below I want this cat to learn.
I looked the whole world over in search of
And from the folks that crowds lifes land I have chosen you.
Now will you give her all your love, nor think the labor vain?
Nor hate me when I come and take my kitty home again?
My heart replied" My lord, Thy will be done"
For all the joys this kitten brings, the risk of grief I run.
We'll shelter her with tenderness, we'll love her while we may.
And for the happiness we'll have known, forever grateful stay.
But should you call her back much sooner than we planned,
we'll brave the bitterness of grief and try to understand.
If by your love we manage your wishes to achieve,
than in memory of her we loved, please help us while we grief.
When our cherished kitty departs this world of strife,
please send another needy soul for us to love all it's life.
