Wherever You Are
By Amy Ludwig VanDerwater
Inspiration piece

You left a box of kittens.

I brought it home with me.

I bottle-fed those kittens

and loved them tenderly.


I held each kitten to my face

and whispered in each ear —

You are safe.  I love you.

There’s nothing left to fear.


That was many months ago

I still think of you.

I wonder if you care at all.

I like to think you do.


If you abandoned kittens

I wish that you could see

how beautiful and friendly

my cats turned out to be.
