Lucy

I watch her there,
Sprawled out beneath the sun,
A paws twitch from a running dream,
My graceful feline streamlined,
For beauty's sake alone.

A whisker and face to awaken me,
A familiar face of many years,
Faithful as ever,
A need she feels,
Out of unconditional love,
And of course,
A hearty meal.

A nightmare for others,
That small scurrying rodent.
A playful game,
Between gladiator and saint,
'Til death he must part.

Years of comfort you once gave,
Years glued solid to my heart,
Please remember me when I arrive,
At that place of everlasting peace.

Thank you, Lucy.

John

this was a terrific tribute to an old friend. I hope she passed peacefully.

Beautifully written John. You have a way with words.

A sequel stands beyond,
Invisable as music,
But positive as sound."

Thank you both for your kind words. Much appreciated. I thought this one might have been a little too sentimental for a cat, but what can I say, I'm a cat lover through and through. Thanks again.
