Cat and his mother

Laying there, was not all he 
did,

sleeping alone, was not all he 
did,

dreaming of his young self, was 
not all he did,

crying for you, was not all he 
did,

staring into space, was not all 
he did,

wanting your love and 
attention, was not all he did,

purring in your arms, was not 
all he did,

making you worry, was not all 
he did,

having a lions heart, was not all 
he did,

imprinted love in your soul, was 
not all he did,

letting you hold him until he 
was gone, was not all he did,

leaving fond memories for your 
heart, was not all he did,

letting you say good-bye, was 
not all he did,

sharing all this and his love 
with you,

is what all he ever did.

    This is a beautiful ode to Cat. Pets give so much love that loseing one hurts as much as loseing any member of the family. With much warmth TLee
