Yaffa's in her Twilight Years


Yaffa's been around a long, long time
seen lovers come and go
dreams built and broken, though
Yaffa doesn't know or mind

She's lost her fangs but still retains her grace
Yaffa has a face framed by orange fur
and the strangest purr
no other feline makes

Yaffa used to be a warrior
tormenting mice, disappearing for nights
now she's glad to spend all day
on the floor

She's just an animal-but then
that's all I am as well
no greater and no less than Yaffale

Yaffa's been a good companion
So glad I met her
I'll never forget her
I know I'll miss her when she's gone
