Best Friend

by Ford Prefectrat

We were together

Little ratlets in a tank

Then just the two of us

Left over.

We were together

She took us home

Even though we were big.

We were together

In a condo by her bed

Sharing pizza, corn, cookies-

Rat goodies.

We were together

In adventures on Mount Couch

And Desert Bed with

Forest Pillows.

We were together

New condo

New room

Begging by the couch

For treats.

We were together

When you got sick

Not much movement.

We were together

To celebrate

New adventures

More times

You moved and ate.

Then you pillowed your head on me

Gasping for air to breath-

We were together.

Now your gone.

I sit in your hammock

Waiting for you.

I miss you.

I’m alone.
