You Were Found


You were found in a field after a storm,

And became my daughter's hurricane's eye.

Together you found trust and a love to warm

Two tiny frightened hearts with purrs and sighs.

As Beth transformed from toddler to teenage,

You transformed from kitten to past your prime.

How unjust the spans of your flowerage!

Syncopated soul mates should be a crime.

Should I toss my daughter a dumb cliche?

When she will always measure love by yours?

Promise a lifetime on her wedding day?

When my granddaughter finds a lost mewers?

Life starts with kittens in Cabbage Patch clothes,

And ends with adieu bravissimosss.
