NaPoWriMo – Day 24

Eulogy for Riley

Farewell my little friend.

How faithful you have been to me.

As you lay on the rug at my feet.

Slept soundly upon my knee,

or snuggled up to me in bed for love and warmth.

I shall miss your loud purring and gentle snores.

Your quiet meows of communication, your big beautiful eyes.

Your thick, clean coat with its tabby and white markings.

I called you and Rio, the Daz boys,

Because both of your white fur was so sparkling white.

Farewell Riley from the two of us who loved you best.

Your grieving human and your Rio, your sad companion.
