Follow the Cat

Omar Mohamed Eldamsheety, Egyptian poet...Born in 21 August 1978 in Tanta, Egypt...Graduated from Faculty of Engineering in 2000.

That lovely cat walked around me.
It spooks sweetly and musically.
It asked me why you are weak.
Oh yes, I know cats can't speak.
But I can imagine and write anything.
Because I'm a poet and writing a song.
Just wait, my dear, it told me more.
It gave me a key for a secret door.
I used the key but nothing happened.
Again I tried, the door was not opened.
Angrily I said; cat, do you mock me?
It smiled and said give me that key.
It smiled and said with the power of love.
Whatever I will face only love I will give.
Then it used the key and opened the door.
How she disappeared, really I'm not sure.
I walked through the door to a magical land.
I found a sea of silver with golden sand.
On a magical boat, I have crossed the sea.
On the other side, I found a very big tree.
About a thousand birds were singing a song.
"Only love my dear could live so long"
I listened to them and have fallen asleep.
I was too tired so I have fallen too deep.
When I opened my eyes I saw that cat.
With a smile, it said, goodbye soulmate.
Looked around and found no magical land.
There is no sea, no tree, nor golden sand.
Just you with me on this train station.
All that I saw from my imagination.
