For Whiskey

I had to say goodbye today to my sweet calico cat. She was fifteen years old and succumbed to heart failure. This is for her:

As quiet as a whisper
death takes my old friend.
Her eyes beg for love
even until her end.
Tears fill my eyes
as I feel her pain.
Joy fills my heart
as I feel her love.
