sunlight in your hair

sunlight in your hair,
i watch as you cradle
our snow-white-bellied cat
in your bare brown arms,
and kiss his head
as he tries to escape
half-heartedly.
if i could keep
only one memory
as my earthly mind
erases into oblivion,
this would be enough
to carry me through,
and remind me,
that with you,
i was happy.
