I used to fall asleep, head brushing fur
to the gentle melody of your steady purr
And I can still remember exactly how it felt
warm and safe and comforted, my head on your pelt
And even when we knew? When the world grew so dark?
In the night you'd purr, to ease my aching heart
Do you know, my love, how much you mean to me?
How much I love and miss you so? Tell me, can you see?
I know that you loved me
Because in the night you'd purr, no matter how sick you'd be
You would always purr, just to comfort me
And on the day you died, on that very night
As I lay awake in bed trying not to cry
I heard the sweetest sound from the pillow at my right
I could not see you - but I know - you purred for me that night
It's true I cannot hold you, nor can I kiss your fur,
But I know you're still here, for in the night you purr
My Precious, you still purr
