Snuggles My Baby



For fifteen years my heart and life you have touched.

I have loved you so very much.

But this one thing you have let me know,

Now is the time to let you go.

I don’t want to face it right now,

Even though I have to get the courage somehow.

Your suffering got the worst in every way,

By not even eating your treats or people food,

“Let me go” is what I heard you say.

Snuggles, it’s only because I love you so,

That today, with a broken heart, I can let you go.
