poem for a cat who got hit by a mom yesterday

21 03 2007

i knew i should have taken you with me yesterday

how sweet you were to be so nice in the morning

i never met a cat so nice, even the ones in my own home.

i knew it the whole time that later you’d be gone

not knowing exactly that it would be that same day

beneath the wheels of a mother’s big car.

i’m so sorry i didn’t take you

and just last night i pictured you curled up

on my orange couch in the sun and hoped

i would find you today to bring you home.
