A Broken Heart

(In Memory of Jack the Cat)

You died
Suddenly they said:
A heart condition.
Deeply well I knew
The stagnant waters
Of your sadness
Days before we hugged
In the stunning spring Sunlight
Our mutual weakness
Silently exposed
Eyes closed in
A preparatory parting
Another fallen sparrow
Is God too busy again?
Can I blame Him now?
Do I weep or scream?
For the meek inherit
Nothing in life
Just torment?
Like Christ died in pain
Believed He was forsaken
‘Twas a broken heart.
