My best friend, my cat Lara passed away in March 28, 3.10 p,, in Belgrade, from virus Feline panleukopenia.
Dream a dream
inside a dream is
an eternal dream
I cast a peace spell on you
Sleep tight my little sleepy head
Smooth sailing through the night,
Close your wide – opened eyes
Your pupils do not belong to
These dark regions
Nowhere to go after this wish so
You all to myself, to dissappear together
In the place lit by some new suns
(Why I did not die instead of you?
Why you did not take me?)
My duration mocks at me
Tomorrow and tomorrow will undergo
Wearing a poison in unbearable journey
Nowhere to go when I want to get into
The dawn in my kitten’s eyes
I’ll see you again on the horizon
wherein dream prevails
we meet again
and at the end and on the extension of the road
rest my sleeping beauty
sleep with serene Mud Maid’s sleep
on the other side of the eye
glistens your heart vividly
and though I want to assure myself you
went with a smile
my soul cries, I…
I know that death is the wall that separates us
and that life of the dead living is blinding my sight
but that is the nature of sorrow
this is the law of the crying mind
Calm be in the horizon
Wait for me..
where they sing ancient lullabies
are you running now lively and all rested?
Wait for me…
at the end of the road and on the extension of the times
tomorrow you’ll be hanging out with roses
night night, my love

Losing a beloved pet is a painful experience. This is a fine elegy for her.
At this moment, she is with me. She is at home. We are waiting for the dawn to bury her beside the Danube, with roses. She will be pleased. But, now, as she is sleeping inside my shoulder, I wish the neverending night. Sun, don’t go out. Not for me. She was more than a pet, she was my true friend, our connection is strong. She will never die as long as I live since she is resting in my heart, right beside my grievence for her. Thank you for your comment, Leonard.
So, so sad. I know your pain.
Thank for your compassion, Dejan. I know you do. Hvala ti.
