My cat left me a leaf at my bedroom door;
It was big and bright the best I ever saw,
Lovely to receive a present so sweet.
I know he wanted to give me a very special treat.
If only my lover would leave a gift such as this.
My ginger cat Woody loves to play with all kinds of things,
Anything that he can move, sometimes to me he brings,
He has been known to chase imaginary beings
Leaping high up onto shelves then up to the ceiling.
If only my lover had such joy in living.
Woody purrs and stretches licks and nips
I look at him now as he soundly sleeps,
The leaf I left outside my door,
Soon withered and tore and now is no more.
My lover too, has now gone forever,
I wii remember the leaf but him, hopefully never.
