I remember when I brought you home,
My tiny girl so sweet,
You were so lonely and abandoned,
You just needed love and to eat.
I remember your first night
Mum said you would sleep in the kitchen
I woke up to the cries of your meows
I couldn’t help crying and twitching.
I opened up the kitchen door
And there you were confused
Lost in the darkness alone
I swore you’d been abused.
I carried you up the stairs
And I promised just for tonight
Who would have thought 8 years later
I’d wake up to the same sight?
You grew into such a character
My little girl Summer-Rose
Your beautiful calico colours
Your little ginger nose.
I know you are at Daddys now
And he loves you so
But I always come back to visit
I love you more than you will ever know.
