All cats go to Heaven

For a small gentleman

You have died,
Summer is over,
Summer is gone.
You protected me, from all the new things
Coming at me, so fast.
You were kind, and sweet and trusting.
And you protected me, from fear
You eased my way
With you body
Like a light
Waiting for me when I came home
And although I never held you
You held me
You helped me
I loved you.
Rest in peace.
Tommy cat.
The summer holds your name and I will always remember you
On my small blue porch, under the summer flowers, resting,
