My Louisa

My kitty is old
Her fur is pure white
Green eyes big and bold
Full of love and delight

Sweet sixteen
She’s never been mean
She bathes everyday
Keeps herself clean

She sleeps on our bed
Between us, you see
Or up on my torso
Or down by his knees

Allergies and life
Have taken their toll
Age is not kind
Can we rewind?

She now has a tumor
I tell you no lie
Meds to feel better
Before time to die

There will be no surgery
No Chemo & no radiation
Quality of life
Is our decision

So we take a breath
And care for and love her
Dear Louisa,
we love you
