In your last meow,
I held you right on my heart;
then- then you left me . . .
I held you till you were stone,
and I had to let you go.

Valerie, thank you. I lost my old cat Smudges to death in June 2018. She died at home in my arms and I did hold her till she was stone. She loved the garden. How long will I weep for her? . . . Forever ! Thanks for the compliment !
