    A Little Part of Us

    A Little Part of Us died today.
    Our Miss Velvet Kitty passed away.
    Our special little friend, that made a home
    with us from our beginning until her life end.
    She came to us a wisp of a kitty,
    with shining eyes and a purr so pretty.
    She had no whiskers and a thin frame,
    she cuddled and nurtured and earned her name.
    That little part she made with us
    will never be the same.
    Inside we long to hold her close and feel her beating heart,
    that little part she gave to us, right from the very start.
    As Autumn leaves fall and blow in the wind,
    our loss can never be whole again.
    So many memories she shared, for her departure,
    we could not prepare.
    Now our home is quiet and still,
    the space Miss Kitty always filled.
    We know in our hearts if she could have stayed,
    she wouldn't have had it any other way.
    Now onto a heavenly place she'll go.
    leaving us sad and full of woe.
    Her beautiful spirit will always be,
    with us for eternity.
    (In memory of Miss Velvet Kitty April 1989-October 24, 2007)

    what a sweet and gentle poem, indeed sad but gentle. i love it.



    I miss this Kitty, still so much. She was dear friend. The poem really describes her. I feel fresh feelings of loss when I read it. I have a new kitty and she understands how I feel I think.

    Such words of woe spun into a fine poem in memory of one's closest precious little kitten. So much love expressed.................g



    Thanks so much for reading " A Little Part of Us" about dear Miss Kitty. We still miss her so much, although we have adopted a new little kitty named, Choco Spirit and she is delightful and sweet and helps heal the sadness of the loss so much. Thanks for your sentiments..

    A very lovely tribute to your beloved pet. I can so relate to the feelings you conveyed in this. I had 2 German Sheppards -litter mates Sasha and Shultz - I adopted them from a shelter when they were 3 and loved them both dearly. I lost Shultz at 11yrs - he was my gentle giant 145lb of muscle and as dumb as an Ox! All Brawn! LOL :) and Sasha at 12yrs - she was smart as a whip and fast and agile.- All Brain. I miss them terribly. They were my babies ... Thank you for sharing this poem - it brought back some wonderful memories that I had with them. And I'm thankful for the time we had together. A really Great Write! ....... Ken



    thanks for sharing your sorrow and your words.

    A touching tribute to Miss Velvet Kitty and all the happy moments shared with her. I have no doubt that where ever she is, she feels the same about you.



    thank you. I have since adopted a new kitty and she is different but helps heal the pain

    A nice moment in time that endures. A very nice read.



    thanks. I know that my time with her has endured since she went away.

    Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.
