To my beautiful cat Darcey, who disappeared 5 weeks ago.

I fancy that I'll see you
Strolling down my drive one day
Winding yourself round my legs
Like you'd never been away

And then I'd probably pick you up
Wouldn't want to set you free
It'd be sardines and tuna for weeks and weeks
And your favourite - milky tea

I'd probably want to stare at you
And stroke you so I could feel
That my beautiful Darcey had come home
It wouldn't seem quite real

You were only 7-weeks-old
When I took you home with me
What a beautiful and gorgeous lady
You soon turned out to be

I felt that you'd be with me
Till you were old and grey
But only 2 years later
You had gone astray

The high hopes I'd had that you'd come home
Have begun to fall
For I've knocked on every door
And responded to every call

I've searched and called in pouring rain
Put up flyers and posters of you
I've rang round every vet and checked
With every shelter too

I've stopped passing strangers to ask
'Have you seen a tabby cat?'
I've exhausted every idea I've had
My batteries have run flat

I don't ever want to say
That I've given up, lost faith
Cause you'll always be welcomed home
That'll always be the case

I miss you so much
That as I write this I could cry
But it seems that for me and you
This is a sad goodbye

But I still fancy that I'll see you
Strolling down my drive one day
My precious little Darcey
I do hope you're okay.

Maybe one day that will happen
And I'll make that milky tea
Can you hear me, lovely Darcey
Please come home to me

Your poem made me cry. You went to great lengths looking for your baby. I hope she will be sitting at your door one day when you least expect it. Keep checking the lost and found in the news paper anyways.. Thoughts and prayers are with you and Darcey.

Oh Gillian,

That is so beautiful. I'm in tears. I do pray that you will come home one day and she will be strolling down your drive. I will continue to keep you in my Prayers. Precious Darcey.
