1. For Charlie

A good friend of mine, Charles B. Steele had to put down his 16 year old Cat Mocha a ways back. I lived with mocha for several years and Imiss her a lot. She was big, bossy, and such a lover.
The night before he put her down, I sat up for a few hours last night writing this song for him.
I got stuck 2/3 of the way through, called him on the phone, and after I listened to how utterly broken his heart was, I found the missing pieces of the song.
If you’ve ever had to put an animal down, this song is for you -
