Buckminster & Amber 16

Amber in window
I wait here every day, hoping to see him pass my way
Perhaps a passing glance, a knowing look
How can he leave me so alone?
It’s been almost a week.
Bucks, hear my plea
Come back to me!
The two of us belong together, not apart
Can you not feel my aching heart?
Where has he gone?
He’s not an outdoor cat
I worry so
Has something happened to my love
Am I to never know?
