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
