ISIS


You came into our lives only knowing fear,
Yet you blossomed in the space of a year
You gained weight and began to purr
And a cover of velvet became your fur.

You were always the quiet one of the gang
Often you'd purr but never sang
Gentle and silent was your way
Yet you brightened up the darkest day.

For eighteen years you were our friend
And as I stood with you at the very end
I could see you were tired and ready to go
But dear little Isis we miss you so

As the years went by you found your miaow
As you became deaf it was a hell of a row
Your demands to be fed could be heard far and wide
I think I still hear them although you have died

I hope Rainbow Bridge welcomed you
And now you're playing with the others too
Willum and Merlyn would be there
And you can run and jump without a care

It's lonely here without your voice
Yet we carry on because there is no choice
The years may roll by and we'll miss you less
But you'll never be forgotten our little Princess
First off I did not write this! It was written by :iconelectricfox5:'s Mum, following the recent death of our beloved 21 year old cat Isis.

Almost a week ago she suddenly couldn't move one of her back legs. It was discovered that her leg had broken just below the ankle joint, and sadly, due to her age, there was nothing else we could do other than make the big decision no pet lover wants to make.

I keep seeing her walking into the kitchen to demand food, only to realise that it's Nikita, our other black cat.

I know, I wish I could. I thought about trying to write one for Max... but there's a reason I left Poetry club... Other than I spent most of my time filling my poetry book with pink and purple dolphins... :paranoid:
