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…
