Ode to a Cat

winter dawn
I wake up early
since you left

since you left
taking your last breath
I am here

I am here
our time has come
for us to part

for us to part
I come back home
to this empty house

to this empty house
the absence of you
I start to notice

I start to notice
we walk new paths
I understand now

I understand now
in this passing of time
spring dawn
