Simple Pleasures

Learn to Enjoy Everyday Simple Pleasures

Officer Goodie

No animation in this poem.  Just words about the cat love of my life, Goodie

I just tolerated cats
Then there was Officer Goodie
Goodie for Short
Changed my outlook that
Cats are aloof, fussy
and you can't heard them
Goodie helped me
realize that my
my thinking was skewed

Each cat is different
Each cat is unique
Each cat is not a dog
That was my skewed thinking
Goodie was very skewed

He wondered into my
life as a stray and it
took a spell to gain
his trust and love
but when he
gave the trust and love
it was 100% and unending

Goodie accepted me with
my faults and troubles
and I did the same for him
(Although I never found
any faults in Goodie)
Which made it so easy
to love his little soul

I only got four wonderful
years with this guy
He was taken by a
genetic heart problem
A TRULY BLEAK, BLEAK, DAY
IN MY LIFE I SHALL NOT FORGET
I STILL MISS HIM EVERY DAY
AND HE WILL BE MISSED
FOREVER

His lessons linger on with me
That black and white cat
changed my life and
attitudes forever

Thank you, sweet guy!!
