A Lonely Cat

I wish someone would tell me what is it that I've done wrong.

Why do I have to stay outside in the rain and be left alone so long?

They seemed so glad to have me when I came here as a kitten.

There were so many things we'd do while I was growing up.

The Master said he'd love me as a companion and a friend.

The Mistress said she'd never fear to be left alone again.

The children said they'd feed me and brush me every day.

They'd play with me and walk me if I would only stay.

But now the Master hasn't time, the Mistress says I shed.

She doesn't want me in the house, not even to be fed.

The Children never pet me; they always say, "Not now"

I wish that I could please them. Won't someone tell me how?

All I had, you see, was love.

I wish they would explain

Why they said they wanted mine,

And then left it outside in the rain.
