Cat Eyes
« on: March 11, 2010, 12:40:41 am »
In the dim twilit predawn morning,
An early bird calls out the sun's forewarning,
Quiet as shadows silent feet fall,
As their owner lurches through the hall,
Through the house I steal,
Fearing an alarms sudden peal,
At my side her eyes glow gold.

Years slip through clutching hands,
And I yield to scholarly demands,
And her purrs I soon neglect,
Yet from my heart she won't defect,
When she bites I am reprimanding,
Though in my heart lies understanding,
At my side her eyes grow old.

Now at last I give her my heart,
Though it only shows in my art,
Her image flees from my mind,
and I fear that I've been unkind,
In my heart she'll be forever cherished,
Though her furry form has perished,
At my side her eye grow cold.

   A brief not on the poem: I wrote this poem shortly after we had to have our family cat put down (Thursday March 4th). She was always my favorite pet despite her disgruntled attitude. She would be alone when she wanted to be, and cuddle with you when she wanted to, and I suppose I related to her loner style. Her death hit me hard, and I guess this poem is a method of coping for me.

This is a beautiful poem, I love the imagery and feeling in it.
Semi-Retired from Furry.

I am sorry for your loss, but I am glad that you found some closure in it by writting this poem. It is a nice memorial that will last forever now.
