• Late one night - it was actually morning,
    a gilded girl awoke as if a warning.
    Knowing her pet had long since been gone...
    but with all that left; it was hard to move on.
    Tears down her face she bought both rat and fish,
    perhaps hoping to forget and forgive a wish.
    She knew somewhere it would never be same again,
    but at least likewise part of them always remain(ed).
