Lesson From A Lost Love
By Greg Lawson
An Animal Rights Poem from All-Creatures.org

All of God's creatures have rights, a fact that most people don't seem to recognize. This includes both human and non-human animals, but not all of them can speak for themselves.

Lesson From A Lost Love
By Greg Lawson

In my arms, a small body.
Can't carry his weight.
Hard saying goodbye
my friend....my housemate.

If I could give you new life,
my love, my cat friend,
But it's just not to be,
a journey reaches an end.

I wish I could've told you
all you've taught me,
how all creatures have feelings,
And how you made me see
all animals everywhere
wish to be free.

I did what I could
within my power
to make you happy
until your final hour.
Remember me, catfriend
I wish you the best
and now, my love,
lay down and rest.
