Five Years Past

The fur no longer

Covers the chair

Where you used to lie

No more food kernels

To sweep up

Remnants of breakfast

Your meows still

Echo through

My crying memories

I miss you today

As much as yesterday

And every tomorrow

You still purr in my soul

Forever my shadow

My handsome Stumpy
