In loving memory of my cat

"Slinky Malinki was blacker than black,
a stalking and lurking adventurous cat.
He had bright yellow eyes, a warbling wail
and a kink at the end of his very long tail.

He was cheeky and cheerful, friendly and fun,
he'd chase after leaves and he'd roll in the sun.
But at night he was wicked and fiendish and sly.
Through moonlight and shadow he'd prowl and he'd pry."

To wonder about wandering mist

Maybe you are never alone,
Maybe you never wander on your own,
Maybe you are walking in a forest, or by a peaceful river.
Angels always surround you, and maybe friends are always there.
But maybe too dark a place makes it difficult to see, to not see.
To see what is not there, and to not see what is there...

Maybe someone lights up a candle just for you,
and candle light goes a long long way,
But candle lights dont last that long, do they?
And so if you must walk in a dark place,
maybe next time, bring the light with you.
