I once loved a big cat
and one day he became my invisible cat
he no longer greets me
as I walk through my door
he no longer makes me smile
but my heart is still filled with love
that never leaves my inside.
thank God I have an imagination
and I can imagine holding, hugging and kissing
my big kitty and doggie who aren’t here anymore
but they both used to sleep all day on my bed
and I pretend they are both still there
when I go to sleep every night
and that’s the only thing I can do
to ease my pain and not cry myself to sleep.
