Louie Lamour by Cheryl Bishop / Your human family-Cheryl

I lost
another friend today-
Louie Lamour
crossed the bridge
while I slept
leaving his body behind
for me to find.
Just a kitten
when he came to me
abandoned by another.
Always sweet and loving,
he grew into
a handsome black and white
gentleman cat
with a ready purr and
a meow to answer my human voice.
He’d wrap himself around me at night
and purr us both to sleep.

Goodbye my friend.
You will always be in my heart.
Love survives even
the Great Goodbye.


The Great Goodbye,
Louie Lamour
