My Cat

Comfort Competition Entry

By Ash TaylorPublished 2 years ago 1 min read

The world is quiet, late at night

And in my room a little light

Spins circles on the ceiling.

Today’s events are in the past

And sleep is finding me at last

But in my arms a ball of fur

Is softly purring sweetly.

I draw her close and kiss her head

I’m blessed that she should share my bed,

And make my life much brighter.

Goodnight, I whisper, safe and sound

I know that she will stick around,

We share a home, my cat and I.

The sun has set outside my door,

And though I wish that I had more,

I know that I have all I need.

    So sweet, and stellar job with the rhymes. I had to write a sonnet back in secondary school and I vowed I'd never work hard for rhymes again! lol. It was so stressful. :D
