Little Soul
our Boy
turn around.

Let your eyes look up
straight into the mirror of heaven.

Know it will be alright.

Do not tremble.
Be steady.
But do not hold onto the ground.

Know, I am here with you still.
Be comforted, do not fear for your future.

All cats have nine lives, yet,
I believe you will have
a million.

And I hope to see you
in them all.

....."Wherever you go I'll be with you"

time is supposedly a Human construct.
It cause much grieving when we feel the loss of it
or more specifically the loss of time with some one
we hold dear. I read something recently which gave me
peace. In Lakota language there are no words for
saying good-bye to the dead. There is only good-bye
until we meet again, later...perhaps, meaning
in another life. That is what I was trying to say
in this poem. I hope, I like the wise Lakota, have
succeeded in conveying this message.

NOTE TO ANY AND ALL WHO READ THIS:
GHUEY IS NOT AN 'IT.' OR  JUST A CAT OR ANIMAL.
GHUEY IS AND WAS OUR CHILD, A TRULY SENTIENT BEING
AND A LITTLE BUDDHA-MAN, LIKE HIS PREDECESSOR TIGGER.
PLEASE TO NOT REFER TO HIM AS AN 'IT' EVER. THANK YOU
