My Boy

It was love at first sight,
Though we didn’t quite get along,
You tried to eat kitty,
My girlfriend wanted you gone.
But you were mine,
I looked you in the eye,
I told you I’d love you,
I told you I’d try,
I read all the books,
I paid all the bills,
Made said girlfriend my wife,
To give you stronger will.
But you gave back infinitely more,
Taught us there’s grace in opening our door.
That kitty’s now your brother,
My wife your ma,
Our forever family,
Even now that your gone.
We tried our best to keep you happy, boy,
When we took you in,
I guess you couldn’t have asked for much more,
And in the end, neither could I.
