The Last Battle
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 – can’t be 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 ‘til 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.

COMPETIVE NAPPING EVENT ENTRIES
The rules for competitive napping are really easy. All you have to do is submit a photo of you napping. Preferably in a spot you're not meant to be, but any photo of you taking a nap is eligible.
You can email Huffle the photo, or post it on your own blog and leave her a comment to tell her it's there, or you can post it on your own blog and email her to tell her it's there. It's that simple. You can enter any time between now and midnight Friday (midnight wherever you are). If you post the photo on your own blog and tell her about it, you are giving me permission to borrow the photo to post on Huffle's blog for the finals on the weekend. All competitors will have their photos on her blog on Saturday and Sunday, and Monday will be the medal ceremony. If you email Huffle your entry, please make sure you include your name, and your blog address so she can make sure your photo links back to the right spot.
So get napping everyone! All kitties, and pups who think they can nap as well as kitties, are eligible to enter.
