A poem to my Foster Cat
A Poem to my Foster Cat - edited from a Poem to my Foster Dog by Diane Morgan.
A POEM TO MY FOSTER CAT* *(DOG)
By Diane Morgan
I am the bridge,
Between what was and what can be.
I am the pathway to a new life.
I am made of mush,
Because my heart melted when I saw you,
Matted and sore, limping, depressed,
Lonely, unwanted, afraid to love.
For one little time, you are mine.
I will feed you with my own hand.
I will love you with my whole heart.
I will make you whole.
I am made of steel.
Because when the time comes,
When you are well, and sleek,
When your eyes shine,
And your heart purrs* with joy *(tail wags)
Then comes the hard part.
I will let you go - not without a tear,
But without a regret.
For you are safe forever -
A new cat* needs me now. *(dog)
