This tribute is in memory of Storm, the Furry Fighter who won two battles against cancer. Her body had no more to give and she is now at the Bridge where other friends are to greet her. She leaves behind her, Castle, her two mommies, and all of us at the Cat Blogosphere, who are winners because we were fortunate enough to have known her. She taught us how to live our lives and how to be very brave. Storm, we love you; we miss you; and we look forward to the day when we will be reunited.
The Last Battle" - Author Unknown
If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this -- the last battle -- I have won!
You will be sad I understand,
But don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.
We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.
Take me to where to my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me till the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don't grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do;
We've been so close -- we two -- these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.
