My Tamest Tiger

1 Review

His world with them started on Easter

When they found him cuddled and small

lying in a shiny white basket

where he was waiting for them all

and though he was not vicious

Tiger was his name

And then I came and he grew suspicious

"Where has this little human come from?"

"Why does she love me so?"

And then he looked at my eyes

as innocent as a does

And he loved the little human so

He let me rest my head on his belly

We were like peanut butter and jelly

And we shared the same crib

We were practically sib

And so we grew up together

in bad and fair whether

until May 1st,

a few minutes after 3

I was only 13

And yet on my bed, he lay

He was old and had used up his lives, scratching death in the face

It wasn't fair to leave me crying there

his body curled up on my bed

I didn't know he was dead

He was in his favorite pose

I took a picture

then pet his toes

and when he didn't wake up I knew

I screamed and fell back

and folded, I cracked

My Tamest Tiger is dead.
