It's been a lovely few days,
Though bittersweet,
Words out on the town and out on the street
That Gumpy Sweet Boy left for Rainbow this week
Checking out of this plane in mystic cat speak

Now I feel sorta sad, but I know what I know
We cats are born knowing where we will go
When we leave our old bodies that don't work any more
We simply open a window instead of a door
And leap free of stress and sorrow and pain
We learn to be young and kittens again

And after we cross, we collide at the bar
A place called O'Casey's just south the North Star
A salute awaits you, you'll find warmth love and cheer
Not to mention they have the best Guiness and beer

Gumpy Sweet Boy, you're a legend you know,
They'll meet you at O'Caseys and put on quite a show
I hear tell Tigger does tricks, Alfie's got pirate tails
Squeaker sings songs, Boxie's got racing snails

The girl cats galore will flock over to you,
A handsome boycat, you won't know what to do
I can see them quay up, try to catch your attention,
Circles, Queen T...beauties too many to mention

And O'Caseys will be packed and you'll have a great time,
As they celebrate your life, you know you'll be fine
I know as I lay back and purr now tonight
A right bunch of cat kind will see you alright

Ah, but I know you're thinking, what about Mom,
Is she ok, can she go on
But you know the answer, it's there in your heart
You and your mom will never part
You'll fly different paths, above her you'll glide
Just above clouds, carried in by the tide
To rub at her leg, and purr in your place
She'll know youre there though she won't see your face
You'll send her blessings with what you both know
Oh Gumpy my friend, there's strength in Rainbow

And O'Caseys will sing, all one perfect rhyme
Singing you home, back to your time
To soft winter coats, and warm summer kisses
To adventures on leashes and heaped favorite food dishes
Dreamtime is realtime, walkabout for real
We're born in between worlds to a love that we feel
Finding our pawrents, entwining our souls
Lush whisker kisses, eyes dark as coal
Leaping into the air, streaking back home
To the person who loves you-you see, they aren't alone

And how will you come-as a kitten or cat?
Well, I'm not for the tellling of the mystery of that
We're creatures, fey mystics, we don't kiss and tell
I smile at it all for it's all for the well
As I watch the new profile, the new spangled fur
You see it's why I trust Miracles Occur

So back here my friends, this third rock from the sun
I salute you at O'Casey's and hope you're having fun
As I send out a low purr to Gumpy Sweet Boy McGee
Who's found his freedom and is flying far and free


Gumpy-I have yet to meet a a more Gentleman Cat who could dress so well, and so loved by the ladycats. I saltue you with divine intent, and send you on your way with the most heartfelt and wonderous wishes. Xeper and Remanifest my dear friend, my hero, one of the Greatest of the Greats.

We love you Gumpy. We love you.
Trust that Miracles Do Occur.
Love is Forever.

love and light,
Ruffy

Thank you for the lovely poem. Mom will keep this as a memory.

We weren't irish (or big drinkers, MOL), though Mom did use that name on St. Pawtrick's Day while here on Catster.

Oh, Orange Ruffy, my meowmy cried when she finished the poem, thinking of Louis Armstrong, who left us just in April, as well as the other furbabies she has at the Rainbow Bridge.

But she smiled as the read it a second time, as it sounded so funny to imagine all the cats having such a good time.

And we too believe we will all be reunited one day.

Whisker Kisses,
Lizzie Bennett
