SHADOW by Geoge R. Beck / George R. Beck


When she came I smiled.
She sat on my shoulder;
her green eyes met mine and
it was love forever.

I had no idea that her life
would soon be denied.
I called her “Shadow” because she
followed me where ever I went.

She went into death’s dark door
taking a road where I couldn’t
go with her.

I still hear her sweet purr.
She gave me love as only a cat
can give love with her eyes for thanks.

Shadow returned to her heaven.
She lives in my eternal memory.
I know when I leave this earth’s hard core
that my Shadow
will be waiting for me at heaven’s door.


With Love,
Geoge R. Beck
