12 Jul 10 Day Write a Poem Everyday Challenge- Day 3: Treasure Cat
A heart so big
in a body so small.
I can’t imagine how someone could leave you at all.
Your little black nose and toothy wide grin
Your belly swings now, but once you were thin.
Long naps in the sun.
Waking me up at a quarter to one.
A cuddly, lazy, sweet ball of fur.
Healing our hurts with a loud, rhythmic purr.
How were you able to trust again?
How were you able to love again?
Showing up in a field on a hot sunny day
asking to come home with us…
What could we say?
