Your Essence

by Mark A. Dye

Sealpoint ears and paws and tail

A cry much sharper than a wail

With cleverness and sky blue eyes

You'd sleep so sound upon my thighs

Since kitten small your praises sung

My tears did fall as bees that stung

I miss you now my friend of years

And shed for you my mournful tears

I'll not forget that you were there

For me when no one seemed to care

Through all the times so hard and cold

You always stayed for me to hold

I held you close as you did pass

On to the bridge with tall green grass

I've helped you go, be on your way

Now you're healthy, romp and play

I still can't grasp so it would seem

That I shan't waken from this dream

You'll not come back in body whole

Instead just visit, just your soul

But in my heart there lies the tool

The one that still eludes the fool

That tool of love will make me see

Your essence when you visit me
