My Little Friend

My little friend
On cloudy days like these
I close my eyes and remember when
You walked across my piano keys
I don't know why
I never did compare
Your gray coat and the somber sky
Now it feels like you're everywhere

Where did the years go?
I can't believe how they flew
I struggle to remember
When you were tiny and new
Did I do everything?
Did I do right by you?
I'll plant a lime tree
Where I will bury you
And when it blossoms
I'll think about the time we had
And I'll wonder
Did you love me too?

My little friend
You've been the constant
While these ever-changing winds
Took me where I did not expect
Now go to sleep
Sink into my lap
Where you go I can't follow yet
I'll stroke your fur 'til you breathe your last

Where did the years go?
I can't believe how they flew
I struggle to remember
When you were tiny and new
Did I do everything?
Did I do right by you?
I'll plant a lime tree
Where I will bury you
And when it blossoms
I'll think about the time we had
And I'll wonder
Did you love me too?

When I found you
I did not expect to live so many lives with you
And now we're out of time

Where did the years go?
I can't believe how they flew
I struggle to remember
When you were tiny and new
Did I do everything?
Did I do right by you?
I'll plant a lime tree
Where I will bury you
And when it blossoms
I'll think about the time we had
And I'll wonder
Did you love me too?
