I have read this poem countless times and I must say, of all your cat poems this one is my favorite. It makes me cry every single time because I always imagine this stray cat lying on the sidewalk without a hope in the world.

If you were the one who picked it up I applaud you for your humanity and your sensitivity to life. It really shows what a great person you are. Furthermore, are a spectacular poet who can invoke the deepest emotions in just a few verses. This was a very beautiful piece. Thank you for sharing it,~Oni

That is so sad. But at least Sam is in a better place. Somehow, the title makes the poem even more moving.

This poem was so very touching...I'm near tears and I don't like to cry. What a beautifully sad eligy for the strays. It is so needed and you brought a very timely, a very humane topic up. May you keep writing on these issues.

Beautiful memoir for a special soul.
I didn't know the meaning of the word Samhain included the ending and beginning of a circle.
Sam also has origins in Hebrew - "Shmuel," which is two words "Shema" and "El." (Samuel in english) "God has heard." I know that the cries of your Sam were heard as he faith-leaped thru the Window of Light.
(I used to have a cat named Sam. I named my Sam for Sammy Davis, Jr. - Sammy use to like me to read to him. When Sammy disappeared, I found another black cat and named him Jason for 'Jason and the Argonauts.' After Jason died from a car hit and run, he spoke to me and said, "I see Ar-One" [his best friend-cat. She died from kidney failure years ago], and then I watched his light-filled soul body leap thru a diamond shaped window.)

Oh, Dear... I cannot stop crying, tears run down my face as I wright this... I have owned five stray cats that I rescued from a certain early death, but this one reminds me of one I could not save, a little happy gray kitten that my mother couldn't take in.
I can't even forgive her today, 15 years after...
Well... The poem was very moving, a suggestion is that you put it up wherever you can where pepole can see it to prevent the spreading of stray cats, to make people adopt cats in a larger scale.
PS. I will light a candle for Sam this Samhain.

May Sam, when the cycle brings his soul to a new life be born to a cat who's caretakers (as cats can't be owned) be as loving to him all though his life as you were at the end.

That was a truly beautiful poem...and this might sound strange but I really think you captured the POV of a cat. It flowed beautifully, it was inspiring yet it was heart-breaking at the same time. I'm sorry for your loss. I wrote a little poem about my cat that passed a few months back. I found him at the park, and now I truly miss him eventhough I only had him for a few months. Anyways, I really enjoyed this poem a lot. You are a great writer. I'm adding this poem to my favs. And keep writing! =)

That was very pretty and inspiring. I like how you gave real human feelings to a cat, and made people feel its pain. Great job.
~God Bless

Oh, wow... This is such a heart-breaking poem. Amazing and beautiful piece... The last line of the second stanza was my favorite.

I just realized that I've read this before, a long time ago. Funny that I find it again after all this time. Anyways, thanks for your review, and keep writing.

Another moving poem. Really touching, and your realisation at the end was amazing, it's strange when things like that happen isn't it?
