His Name Was Sam
In the sunlight did you doze.
In the shadows did you creep.
Only the best you chose;
On my clean laundry did you sleep.
You were my cat. You were my friend.
You warmed my lap when I was cold.
From the beginning to the end
I loved you as a kitten and
then I loved you more when you were old.
Written by 16 year old KrisTina Hertz the night that her cat was
hit and killed by a car.
