It is with great sadness that another of our
cats has left us.
Lily White from Cats Of the Wild Woods
flew away to the Bridge yesterday.
If you can please stop by and offer
some kind purrs and prayers.
We will always remember Lily.
We choose to surround ourselves with lives
more temporary than our own,
live within a fragile circle.
easily and often breached.
Unable to accept its awful gaps,
we would still chose to live no other way.
We cherish memory as the only
certain immortality, never fully
understanding the necessary plan.
