I Called Him Mellow
Sarah Bullitt lost a beloved feline friend, but then again, maybe not.

I had a black, long haired cat
With enormous soulful eyes
He was my soul friend
I called him Mellow
 
He could walk up a wall
He’d leap up on the trees
He was my soul friend
I called him Mellow
 
One weekend I went away
When I came home he was gone
He was my soul friend
I called him Mellow
 
Calling his name through the woods
Through the paths by my house
Sitting under a tree and asking
Wailing, Where is Mellow?
 
A month later at dusk
I looked down to the floor
There was my soul friend
It was Mellow
 
He spoke without words
Don’t worry about me
There was my soul friend
It was Mellow
 
Calling his name through the woods
Through the paths by my house
Sitting under a tree and asking
Wailing, Where is Mellow?
 
He said, I love you
And then he disappeared
He was my soul friend
I called him Mellow
