It’s evening now, the sun has gone
The bird flies to its nest
Something’s missing, something’s gone
A friend I called “the best”
Years of happiness, years of fun
The welcome always glad
You were happy just to be with me
And share the life we had
That first night - oh what a noise!
You cried yourself to sleep
You missed your Mum, and brothers too
But now you were mine - to keep
And keep I did - 15 years and more
So glad you came to stay
Oh, it’s tough without you, Oliver-
I love and miss you - every day
