Tianne by Katie


Goddess of rats
Live on for eternity
Live in God’s hands
Live in my heart.
It wasn’t long ago
I opened up the petshop box
To find you huddled in the corner
Your eyes showing fear
As you crawled but a wee baby
into my hands.
Days went by
You were not my pet
You were my friend
Sitting in my lap
As we watched the television-
As you ate from my hands
As a planted a kiss
Upon your furry head.
Months went by
Your body is now gone
But your soul
Will last for eternity.
