Companion of my days and nights
Keeping your counsel, wise
Deep, deep the love to share
Inscrutable topaz eyes
I listen, still, with a heavy heart
For the tread of your soft paw
But my wishing will not make it so
You’re gone for evermore
Twilight time and I’m mourning
The light has gone out of my day
Dark, dark the mood of loss
My star has slipped away
Now, silently, on my empty lap
There’s no touch of velvet fur
I listen for my heart’s content
The echo of your purr

Death of a Pet
My beloved Cubby had to be helped on her final journey to the happy hunting ground last week (she promised not to catch any native birds there).
Cubby was a delightful rescue cat with a lovely nature and a sense of humour. RIP my loyal friend.
The photo shows how she dominated my life for attention - the centrepiece in the midst of my activities while having lunch, writing a poem, and finishing a small painting. She adorned my life. (I did shake the fur off the tablecloth when friends came around for dinner!)
