Old cat with kind eyes

Sleeping on my bed

Are you dreaming of birdy days

When you leapt and twirled ballerina-like;

When you prowled backyards and swung through cherry trees?

Old cat with kind eyes

Looking out the rainy window

Did you catch all the mice

And drink all the cream you desired?

Did you fight all the Toms who raised their tails and howled?

Old cat with kind eyes

Did you sleep in enough sun beams

On the autumn afternoons;

Did you purr as often as you could?

Old cat with kind eyes what will you leave behind?

Empty laps and window sills.
