This is about my 'baby', a doggy I've had since she was only a few weeks old, but now she's getting old. It's so hard to see them fading before your eyes :(

And I know humans die too, but we are still immortal compared to animals.

I cry for the soul

Of a little mortal

My baby, my darling

So quickly grows old

You walk so stiffly

I hold you,

Comfort you

I kiss you and you cry in pain

So old, so old

My baby is dying

Grows cold, grows cold

In my arms

A mortal, my baby

Though I live forever

You sleep in my arms

And you're fading away

My little baby

I love you, I don't

Want to let go,

But you won't live forever…
