A Cat’s Valentine’s Day Poem

I wrote this before I went to sleep on 13th Feb 2019:

This Valentine's Day I reflect,
On the love I have for my feline friend,
An enduring love, a bond so strong,
It is too special for it to end,
Our spirits will be one o'er the Rainbow Bridge
And my broken heart you will mend.... Michael (Admin)


This poem was written by a visitor to PoC, Zachariah Atteberry. He's a good guy who loves animals and cats and is involved in cat rescue. He is a certified vet tech too. Very knowledgeable.

This Valentine's day we show warmth
For the humans that we admire,
We give them our complete love and trust,
With all our heart's desire!

We remember the times we made ourselves laugh,
The times we laid under the darkened sky
We are two unbroken in the dawn's rise,
If we were two doves we would fly.

One thing is missing today,
The one who used to paw print my heart,
The feline that let me in soul and spirit,
We must not forget her depart.

It takes a feline's heart to warm a home
That is hollow, empty and cold,
We must not forget that many felines live sadly,
In a world that is grasped by money and gold.

In life there should be two loves to share,
A human and a fellow feline spirit,
May your love be with no despair,
With felines this Valentine's day.

A Cat's Valentine's Day Poem I wrote,
Please leave a comment or anything....Zach

Here is a short poem written by an unknown author:

Gentle eyes that see so much,
paws that have the quiet touch,
Purrs to signal "all is well"
and show more love than words could tell.
Graceful movements touched with pride,
a calming presence by our side
A friendship that takes time to grow
Small wonder why we love them so.

I love your poem Zach. I brought tears to my eyes as I thought about all my cats who arent with me anymore and those unfortunate ones who are still out there with no one to love them.
