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
My human friends are troubled
For You see, they need me, quite certainly."
"But don't they understand?" asked God,
"That you will 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?"
"Eventually they will understand," replied the cat,
"For I will whisper in their hearts - that I am always with
I just am... forever and ever and ever."
