   I wish I could think of something to say to you
Something compelling andintriguing and utterly mysterious
Something clever
Something that wouldmake you stay a little while longer
So I could listen to your gently hummingvoice
Watch you
Appreciate your grace
Your feline beauty
For just afew more moments
Before you leave me
I wish I knew how to talk toyou
What sweet, encouraging words I could use
To get you to stay
So Icould breathe in your essence
Inhale your passion for life
And feel yourbody next to me
For a few moments longer
