Sometimes -- Poetry 2011

Cats in my life keep me sane;

cats in my life keep me insane…

they cycle in and out of existence.

Sometimes their stay is far too short;

sometimes their stay drags on…

their slow decline wears on my spirit.

It’s the rescuer in me wanting to stave

off death; cheat it for a while, keep the

physical presence of a treasured

friend draped on desk, lap or bed.

Sometimes you just have to let go…
