Thoroughly Poetic Thursday


Yesterday - Fiona as a kitten.

May 12, 2010


Many yesterdays have passed since
You gained your angel wings. Today
Is six months since you left us behind
To remember and mourn. Our hearts
Continue to hurt, and we miss
You as much as the day you left.
Giulietta whined from the catio
Yesterday as I worked in the yard.
I know you put her up to it. That
Was your way of getting me to
Allow you to join me as I
Gardened. You were there with me
In spirit. With every meow
I thought of you and how much I miss
Your sweet face and disposition.
In these past few months, many friends
Have traveled your same path in your
paw-steps. I am certain you were
Waiting to greet them with purrs and hugs.
I pray you and your friends are laughing,
Frolicking and having fun together.
Picturing that makes me smile, but
Does not lessen my sadness at your
No longer being here to snuggle
And receive our love, care and kisses.
Fiona, please do not ever forget
You are still and always will be loved.

Yesterday - Fiona (seven months before her death).

May 8, 2016


This is our poem for Angel Sammy and Teddy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday. If you haven’t already figured it out, this week’s prompt letter is “Y.” Twenty-six weeks ago, our “Y” poem also was about Fiona. That poem, which was written the day before Fiona’s death, is on the side-bar. I used to change the poem there occasionally, but I have not had the heart to take “You” down. I think this poem will either replace or join it. If you have an opinion, let me know.

Thankful Thursday

It would seem as if it would be impossible to be thankful with this amazing cat—my heart cat—no longer in our daily lives. But I am thankful everyday that we were blessed to have her as part of our family for the six years she was with us.
