It's my late Mother's birthday
and it's true I miss her so,
And it is on this very day
my Gabriel chose to go.

A regal, gorgeous all-white cat,
Gabriel was my heart's pride,
His presence will be sorely missed
and mourned, now that he's died.

Gabe's wide eyes, so intelligent,
he knew when I was down...
He'd lick my hand and pat my face
and play the circus clown.

My Gabe was so affectionate,
his spirit full of love,
His heart as big as all outdoors
and gentle as a dove.

Now Mother's smile will greet him
and she'll hold him all day long,
She'll cuddle him as angels dance
and sing the birthday song.

And he'll make Heaven sweeter
as they celebrate her birth,
Gabe's tender soul will bless her day,
a special gift from earth.

So Jesus, hold them close to You
and let my Gabriel be
A birthday gift for Mother,
sent with all my love, from me.


"But it is written,
Eye hath not seen,
nor ear heard,
neither have entered into the heart of man,
the things which God hath prepared
for them that love Him."
(I Corinthians 2:9, KJV)
