The Thieves of Hearts

*Special Note*
I wrote this for my dear friend Annie who recently lost her beloved little kitty.

They arrive
Unlooked for
Winning you over
With playful ways
To make you laugh

Each unique
In personality
Still sharing the
Feline independence
Grace agility
Curiosity

Some stay a
Lifetime
Then there are
Those chosen few
Who stay for
A season or two

We nurse them
Give a life
Of freedom
Unconditional love
For with them
That’s how it is

Then they go
Feeling their loss
A little deeper
No matter what
We tell ourselves
We ask
Why steal our heart
Only to leave

Little Thieves
Take that gift
To those
Who have left
It helps them wait
Until
They see you again
