There are too many angels in heaven ...  

   

 

Ever loved, I know they wait for  me
 on the other side of the bridge

 

                                                                                                                                                         

                                                                                                                     

                                                                              

Lend me a Kitten

~ author unknown ~         

I will lend to you for a while a kitten, God said.
For you to love while he lives, and mourn when hes dead.
Maybe for twelve or fourteen years, or maybe two or three.
But will you, till I call him back, take care of him for me?
Hell bring his charms to gladden you and,
should his stay be brief
youll always have his memories as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return.
But there are lessons taught below I want
this kitten to learn.

Ive looked the whole world over in search of teachers true.
And from the folk that crowds lifes land
I have chosen you.
Now will you give him all your love,
nor think the labor vain?
Nor hate me when I come to take my kitten home again?

My heart replied, "My Lord, Thy Will Be Done"
For all the joys this kitten brings the risk of grief Ill run.
Well shelter him with tenderness;
well love him while we may.
And for the happiness weve known, forever-grateful stay.

But should you call him back
much sooner than we planned.
Well brave the bitter grief that comes,
and try to understand.
If, by our love weve managed your wishes to achieve.

Then in memory of him, who we loved,
please help us while we grieve.
When our cherished kitten departs this world of strife,
Please send yet another needing soul for us
to love all his life.
