My True Familiar Friend (Requiem For Emma)

This morning I found her in her favorite sleeping spot,
paws crossed in comfortable repose
but this was not the stillness of sleep
but the stiffness of her final pose

constant companion full of faithfulness
longtime warmer of my bed
loyal confidant, elegant and prissy
my true familiar friend

my grief was sharp when I felt the lump
and I ached when you were sick
and now I am filled with relief
to find you here in peace

in this huge world of importance
she was so small in the end
lightly cradled in my arms
my true familiar friend
