I thought I knew

what it meant as I grew

each day I live

is one less to give


My place was there

in that house I care

I was to stay with them

to flow from the same stem


I had few friends who are here

that I hold quite this dear

I once held someone close

now they fill me with morose


They had felt normal for me

someone who was meant to be

I thought it was for life

even into the afterlife


Recently, this has ended

though my heart has mended

I found someone new

who has helped me through


He has given me hope

something to help me do more than cope

I feel at peace for once

even as such a dunce


We laid there

and he seems to care

I know he does now

though I’m not sure how


I love him for this

turning his fear into a kiss

I was like a stray cat searching for my home

though I was free to roam

having found my own home

I'm a recent college graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology that is searching for their way in life. I want to work with animals by helping them in the future.
