Old Cat

They all keep saying “she is old”,

As if that mattered.

As if that made her less,

Less than she had been,

Less than before, before she was old.

For a cat, she is very old

But still her heart is young.

Now her end is in our hands,

Our decision to make, not hers

And all they can say is she is old,

As if that ever mattered.
