" Baloo "
July 1992 ---- March 1997
My hands need to feel your smooth fur once more
I need to wake and find you stretched against me again
I want to see your black face gazing at me with love
I need to hear your complaints just once more.
My ears need to hear you galloping up the stairs again
But once more would not be enough would it?
Do you feel my gut tearing heart wrenching pain
From where you are,
Do you know how much I miss you?
Do you know what a huge empty hole you left
when you went away?
I know you are happy
and playing in the sun
No more sickness or pain
I know that you are just fine my precious baby
It is me that is crying
feeling like I'm dying
People do not understand
"It was only a cat" they say
No you were not only a cat
You were my friend my soul mate my comfort and joy
When I stroked you I was healed from this world
You loved me "second best"
For you were after all Robbie's cat,
But I loved you best
That bond cannot be broken even now that I am so very alone
You made me feel that as long as you were in my life
Everything would always be all right.
Did you see the inscription in Robbie's bible
"Baloo - miss you"
Be happy baby angel
And wait for me…………..
