A Soft Bundle of Sweetness

You scamper across my line of vision

With a look that is so adorable and irresistible

That I scoop you up into my arms

Stroking your unimaginably fluffy fur

More comforting than any pillow I could ever dream of


Though your occasional meows may seem ever so foreign to me

And I am certain that you can’t comprehend a single word I am saying

I could tell by the look of wonder in your innocent eyes

That you were listening

I endlessly confided in you

Because you allowed me to be my authentic self

Unlike the others, you never pointed out my flaws

Never reminded me of the person that I wasn’t

Of the person that I should be


You fall asleep in my arms so effortlessly

As if that is where you belong

As if I never have to let you go

The sound of your delicate purrs

Blocks out the sound of my heartbreak

Because I know that I have to leave you

And abandon you to the crude and unforgiving streets


I could never have the chance to cradle you permanently

For I am known as the one who has nothing to give you

I don’t have the home to shelter you from the storm of those outside

I don’t have the food for you devour without a care

I don’t have the toys to fill your days with mirth

I don’t have the cure to nurture you back to health

But I have all the love in the world to give  to you

I have always had this unconditional love for cats, but unfortunately, due to circumstances I was never allowed to keep one as my own.
