No Buddy

The floor's cat-less, 
The couch is bare.
There's no Buddy, 
Only Buddy hair.

There's no need now
To block the stairs,
And still I step
Over empty air.

And every hour
And everywhere,
I look around
And no Buddy's there.

We had to put Buddy to sleep two days ago. He was a wonderfully low-key cat, perfect for our low-key family. He inspired a number of poems (see my Nobody like Buddy collection). Peace to our s!

    Hugs for the whole family! I’m so sorry you have had to say farewell to Buddy. From the poem I know he was loved and will be missed. <3
