I heard her meow outside the bedroom door
watched the three new cats turn their heads
Was she here wanting to join us
or just passing by?
Tempted to get up and open the door,
but know she wouldn't be there.
by the back door
buried four feet deep
Stones and Buddha
on her grave
Still miss her
but the pain is not constant
The youngest kit has her habit
drinking water from the faucet
Where did he learn that?
