the palm of your hand.

I don't know who owned him, but he was wild and beautiful...now he's gone
Wild,with huge green eyes
you would visit our garden.
Sleek grey coat
With an air of mystery
you surveyed our land.
Who were you?
Who did you belong to?
Bold yet timid,
in another's territory;
yet you always came back.
Now you are gone.
I didn't own you,
or know you.
I never cuddled your sleek soft fur
or held you close,
but you were beautiful!
You were found this morning,
A victim of modern society-
an encounter with speed;
your life was taken.
I pray your Creator
has a wonderful garden
a beautiful place
an outstanding home
where you will always be safe now.
My heart is breaking
my tears are hot
but you are 'home,'
and you will always be beautiful.
I will always remember you....
Oriental cat.
