ONE DAY


ONE DAY
by Janice R.
Hardy

One day I knew you would have to leave us as I watched you growing old,
But swept the thought from my mind like autumn leaves upon the path.
Now,
as l look at your photograph,
your body cold as the frame,
my heart is full,
Sad,
yet calm,
memories a sweet balm.
Every room contains your presence,
each passing hour,
too,
Elegant form washing,
cosily curled,
sleeping,
A soft pad touching my cheek to tell me morning is here,
Face bright,
nose pink,
as you danced across the virgin frost to breakfast eagerly eaten.
I hear the β€˜snap’ of your puss flap,
the β€˜chirrup’ of your greeting as our keys turn in the lock,
Your deep β€˜purr’ of pleasure as you nestle on my lap,
Your β€˜tapping and scrabbling’ as you play in battles mock.
These memories,
and more,
proud lad,
will sustain me until I feel your soft pad upon my cheek,
l’m sure,
One day.
