My Shadow
By Mary E Lacey, Desertrat

Good-bye to a dear friend.

Ghost, we sometimes called you, because you never were around
While the others were eating their dinner, you hid in a secret hiding place
Nowhere to be found.

While the others jumped and played, you were cowering somewhere
We could never find you, you never seemed to be there.

But within the last few days, you came out to play.  Instead of running away, You came up to us to say hi.  You were a very happy cat, why you changed so much, we never knew why.

It never once occurred to us, you were coming out to say good-bye.
Such a happy, friendly cat those last few days of your life.  Playing and
jumping both day and at night.

Than  one sad day we saw you lying on the floor.  We thought you
were asleep, it was afternoon when you always took a nap.  But no,
you weren't asleep, it was nothing like that.

And when you didn't wake up, we knew your life was done.   Your
unique personality, like you, they'll never be another one.

Why did you leave us, I guess , as the old radio show, all we can think is:
Only the Shadow knows.

God Bless and keep you, dear one.
