Three Cats And A Go-Between.

The gentle pad of approaching paws

And Ashton enters in.

Just for a second, close by his side

Another's form I see.

The hands of death release their grip

To briefly, bring a lost one home.


He seems to be a go-between,

From this world to the next.

And each of them will take their turn

To appear somewhere for me.


I know not where I'll see them,

Or when they will arrive.

But I can see them, clear as clear

And always at his side.

The shadowed mists between our worlds

We cannot truly see.

So many things to us unknown-

Bring happiness to me.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

At various times and in different places in my house, my cat Ashton will bring with him one of my previous, and much loved cats, I can clearly see which of the three cats it is. So it's not a shadow or reflection. I only have a second or so with them but its long enough to speak to them.

Thank you, been wanting to write about this for a while, then it just arrived in my head. It annoys me when people say there's no such thing as spirits or ghosts, some of us are 'tuned in' and others arn't , that's all there is to it. I'm glad your cat still visits you. X. I'm hoping all my animals are waiting for me over that bridge. :-) X

They will all be waiting for you at the bridge, and will be so happy to see you. Every animal you've ever had, in all your lives will be there to welcome you home. What a wonderful thought
