REQUIEM

REQUIEM

 

The vet’s visit was unnecessary,

Our Tippie Cat died last night…

His “Missie” saw him breathing

Before he turned out the light.

I found him when I came home,

Transfixed where he had been….

Nosed into our clothes

For a final whiff of when

He learned that we loved him,

Took care of him best we could…

And now I’ve laid him in the ground

On the edge of our old piney wood.

—Rest well, our friend—

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
