Patricia N. Olson

  • And God asked the feline spirit / Are you ready to come home? / Oh, yes, quite so, replied the precious soul / And, as a cat, you know I am most able / To decide anything for myself. / Are you coming then? asked God / Soon, replied the whiskered angel / But I must come slowly / For my human friends are troubled / For you see, they need me, quite certainly. / But don't they understand? asked God / That you'll never leave them? / That your souls are intertwined? For all eternity? / That nothing is created or destroyed? / It just is ... forever and ever and ever.
