Welcome Back, Darling Mickeybear!

A villanelle by Marilyn MonREOW




Passed, the days I longed and yearned
Now, no longer must I wait...
Joy: my Mickey has returned!

His much-loved face I now discern
I smile and step a bouncy gait:
Passed, the days I longed and yearned!

Nightly, I sang soft nocturnes
Looking forward to the date
When my Mickey shall return.

My girlcat heart, it daily burned:
Our reunion to anticipate
Passed, the days I longed and yearned!

We reunite, to love and learn
Together, we luxuriate!
Joy: my Mickey has returned.

My ears are high, my whiskers turned
A poem of triumph I create!
Passed, the days I longed and yearned,
Joy: my Mickey has returned.

*~*~*Welcome back*~*~*, my darling dear! I missed you with all my heart.


I am continuing to hope and purr for precious Ana to arrive safely home.

Oh Marilyn dear, that is such a cute picture and you are a very good poet. I am glad Mickey is back.

Yes, we are all praying that Anastasia comes home safe and soon.

The Cat Realm said...

Thank you so much for your support in these hard times! I felt I needed to go out again, Anastasia would have never wallowed at home in grieve if it would have been me....
It is so touching to see her picture everywhere, you guys are all so amazing....
See - I didn't even realize that Mickey was gone but I am sure glad he is back. Poor Monte...
But you are right: our love for her will always be there, so she will always be there too!!!
