Goodbye My Faithful Companion

You were the one who welcomed me home.
You were the one who soothed my weary bones.
You were the reason why I called this place my own.
But it was your time to pass away alone.

You were the one who made me laugh.
You were the one who made me happy, even though I was sad.
You sailed happily with me in a not so stable raft.
But it was time for you to go and leave what you had.

Your tail was as strong as your spirit and it would wag in delight.
You would sleep beside me, though there were no lights.
You made everyone happy by being funny and full of sprite.
But it was finally your time to take flight.

You were the most loyal companion I have ever had.
You taught me how to love, especially when things went bad.
You would want to play with me in times that I’m mad.
But it was time for you to leave, a reality that’s quite sad.

So now I say to you the simplest truth in my heart.
I didn’t want for both of us to part.
But I have to let you go and move on.
But I will keep your memory alive as I carry on.

The Cats Who Visit Me at Night

There are two cats who visit me in my sleep.
Cats that twirl and lay down with me, as I slumber in the deep.
Cats who lay down on my chest, as if I was a pillowy sheep.
Cats who witness my eyes as they silently weep.

Every night they would come into my room,
Not minding the darkness and gloom,
Of a rustic and dusty lounge which longs for the caress of a broom.
They would meow and lick my eyes,
As if to clean the soot of a stressful day that once again passed by.

They would massage my back like a masseur.
Like confident servants aware that their master will like it for sure.
They would then snuggle in and fall asleep on my chest.
I would then calm down and forget about the past, present, future and the rest.

Never have I been shown a love so true.
A love that is unconditional, honest and sticks like a glue.
Throughout my depressed life, pets have alleviated my story that is blue,
To a brighter and merrier tinge of a colorful hue.

There are two cats who visit me at night and soothes me from within.
Cats that stuck with me, regardless of the disposition I’m in.
Cats that sleep by my side and lightens my burden.
They are an adorable pair, whose names are Fluffy and Hidden.
