Sorrow fills a barren space
You close your eyes and see my face
And think of times I made you laugh
The love we shared...the bond we had
The special way I needed you...
The friendship shared by just we two

The day's too quiet, the world seems older
The wind blows now a little colder
You gaze into the empty air
And look for me, but I'm not there...
I'm in Heaven and I watch you
And I see the world around you too

I see little souls wearing fur
Souls who bark and souls who purr
Born unwanted and unloved
I see all this and more above...
I watch them suffer, I see them cry
I see them lost, I watch them die

I see unwanted thousands born...
And when they die, nobody mourns
These little souls wearing fur
(Some who bark and some who purr)
Are castaways who...unlike me...
Will never know love or security

A few short months they starve and roam
Or caged in shelters...nobody takes home
They're special too...furballs of pleasure...
Filled with love and each one, a treasure
My pain and suffering came to an end
So don't cry for me, my person, my friend

But think of the living...those souls with fur
(Some who bark and some who purr)
And though our bond can't be broken apart
Make room for another in you home and your heart
