From the very first moment
I knew that you were my favourite one.
You were tiny and so tender,
you required all our attention.
But it was such a pleasure to play
with you after finishing homework!
You were my coffee-like little wonder
and I loved to hold you in my arms.
Caressing your caramel-like fur
was like touching fine silk or satin.
Your blue eyes were so expressive
and your tail was so funny.
I nearly forgot you and though
I can remember you in your first days of life.
You were my sweetest gift and you made
a part of my childhood so much more pleasant.
Cats were not your friends,
but you did not harm them.
When you died of old age
I suffered, I suffered very much.
But your memory is still present.
