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.
