You’re getting old, my furry friend
where is it that you roam?
these road trips have to end
it’s time to come back home.

Hector, you stole my heart
and once again I pray
we just can’t be apart
angels bring him home today.

My love, I know you’re wild
I would never hold you back
you’re like a precious child
it’s patience that I lack.

I’ll wait for you forever
just don’t forget the place
through hope I will endeavor
to see your tiger face.

You’ve been with me so long
I anticipate your leaving
but every time you’re gone
my mind can’t stop the grieving.

Everyone says you’re just a cat
And I really shouldn’t worry
what they don’t know is simply that
my best friend’s soft and furry.

    Thank you erika, Hector is so very special, but he’s a tom cat and in Spring I guess he’s just gotta go. Last Spring he was gone for six days and crawled back home half dead with 2 teeth missing. There’s just something about those tough guys. ;) SZ
