YOU SAY YOU LOVE ME

I am a little kitten snuggled up with my mother,
Along with my sisters and my one little brother.
You come along and you squeal with glee when you see me

... and you say you love me.


You take me home and set me up in your room
And cuddle me close, saying you've saved me from doom.
I was sad and lonely you tell me

... and you say you love me.


I am a happy little kitten who gets love and care
With lots of toys and treats and time in the fresh air.
When you come home from work you hold me

... and you say you love me.


A few weeks pass and my life has changed,
My owner is busy with life and nights out arranged.
I lay in my little bed as you walk past me

... and you don't say you love me.


The fresh air time is no more and the toys are all broken,
My heart has grown sad from words of love never spoken.
My coat has grown dull, but you don't seem to see

...and you don't say you love me.


One day you take me to a place called a shelter,
There are kittens running about all helter and skelter.
You leave me there and don't pause to look back

... and you don't say you love me.


The shelter owner bathes me and kisses my nose,
And says ...

'I've seen this before and God only knows,
You are not the first and you won't be the last
of little kittens that have become part of their owners past.
Here you will know true love, you are safe in my arms,
There are warm beds and treats, life will at last have its charms.
Look at me, little kitten, look into my eyes and see my good heart.'

... and you hold me so close I almost can't breathe

... and you say you love me.
