Little Black Cat
So slender and smooth
I’m reminded of silk by the way you move.
When stars fell from your eyes like rain
You showed me how to breathe again.
Sometimes you sit on the windowsill
Coal black nestled near whitest milk.
Sometimes, when you purr
I remember how we were
In dreams, in an airy green bed
There was a poem for me to write
And a song for you to sing
You told me not to hide
So we lay in beauty, side by side.
Once we looked up together
At the branches sparkling with dew
And I looked into your perfect eyes,
Even now I can’t describe these ties,
The strange magic that brings me close to you.
Through snow and rain, little cat
Stars and hail, I see your face
Looking back at me,
Just you and I, in a beautiful place.
Someday, I know, I’ll have to let you go
Until then, let’s just make a perfect song
From the swirling smoke and the falling snow.
