(Animals are such agreeable friends they ask no questions;
they pass no criticisms.)-- Mary Ann Evans
Poem By Ed Kostro
Another day has come and gone,
I lie in bed; is something wrong?
I cannot sleep; I toss and turn,
I know not what it is I yearn.
Then he comes in dead of night,
He brings compassion to my plight.
He perches there upon my chest,
He somehow knows that I need rest.
He peers at me with knowing eyes,
Oh how sage, for one his size.
He gently pats me on my chin,
Then a lullaby, he soon begins.
He sings and purrs deep within his soul,
His love is true so brave and bold.
He never speaks a single word,
Yet, his message - loudly heard.
Hes telling me that all is well,
He soothes me with his feline spell.
True friends like this are truly rare,
For me, this friend is always there.
Soon, together, we drift off to sleep,
Confident in our hearts this bond we keep.
