Cat from


Cat from

from the wrong side

of the tracks

I slipped into your heart

you purred

sharpened my claws

spoke of love.

I recall those first words

your smile

I knew where to lay

my troubles down.

You brushed me

until I shined

made wishes on stars

not demands.

I was from the wrong side

of the tracks

but you found a treasure

wouldn’t let me go back.

This night

I give thanks for

shelter from storms

love you gave

so freely.

I know someday

we’ll meet once more

stroll down memory lane

catch up on us

if I get across the tracks


I’ll be your cat.
