You entered my life when yours seemed grim, affected lonesome heart on a chancy whim. Weak and sick, you fought to justly live, knowing indeed, you had loads of loyalty to give. Wiry - thick- gray mane crowned your debonair grace, accenting strength and slenderness to your youthful face. Fourteen years you honored our humble abode, strutting whole backyard, showing off what you owned. Age griped your lean physique, riddled your body and soul, deep down inside, I knew it was your moment to go. One night you slipped away in the moon-less dark, took my love - my first feline - but left your mark. My sweet Simon - my Sam Bo, appeared by either name, when you adorned my home, my life has not been the same… Copyright © 2016 By Caryl S.

Thank you Andrea, him being the first one I owned, it was hard to let him go. I still miss his love, he was almost human in ways... Caryl
