unfinished business

there's unfinished business
cats in the crematorium
little fingers stretching weakly for grain
time for a soothing bath
no-one at home

there's unfinished business
fresh air on a Monday morning
memories of crossing the burn in summer
hope for redemption
Marley's early death and no swan song

there's unfinished business
final i love yous
an end to dredged up pain
bitter grudges kept on top shelves
and the tidying of old mementoes

there's unfinished business
the stroke of a young face
kittens squealing on your lap for milk
the insufferable itch
the lasting calm
an end to all business
