Toebee, Big Inside
My years are few as you may count—
Of moons I shan’t see many—
But my days are as full as yours
And my life grand as any.
My heart is small by measured weight,
My pulse is light’ning fast,
But it’s a brave heart, good and true,
And full of love to last.
A day to you, a week to me—
Each minute lived is full.
As you have loved these years with me,
So I love life with you.
I eat with gusto, move with grace,
Enjoy life to it’s all . . .
I’m Toebee, and I’m big inside
Though gerbils tend towards small.
