A poem about my cat
My cat, Merlin, isn't very well at the moment and requires an operation on Monday. I'm really worried about him so I thought I'd post the poem I wrote about him with a picture of the two of us. I hope you enjoy it.
Merlin my cat
My friend and my companion
Feline avatar of my soul
You chose to share your life with me
And I chose to share mine with you.
As a kitten you laid upon my chest
Your bright green eyes ablaze
And I felt the love flow from you
Unconditional and true.
You saved my life
Faithful feline friend
A fact of which you are not aware
Not a conscious act
Just a consequence of being there.
The scratches on my arms
Testament to the fighting games we played
And the memories of nights
When you laid by my side.
You hold a special place in my heart
And I keep a picture of you
Ever in my mind
You give me joy and more
My faithful trusted friend.
