I found a suggestion in my comments from Tilly to write a poem about Cali, our kitten, so I
will give it a try.
Silence can be so heavy
With only a television box
Hearing my brother’s tears
And darning his old socks.
Aging process moving along
Can create a cloud of gloom
I need some company here for me
In this dismal little room.
I was asked a question today
From a friend who lives near by
If I wanted to adopt this kitty
And take the sadness from her eye.
I jumped right in with an answer
And said oh yes I will
For I prayed to God this question
For my lonely heart to fill.
Cali, the kitty, is her new name
She craves the love I give
She looks at me with adoring eyes
And has given me reasons to live.
Her dances of play with her toy mice
Has brought me laughter more than once
She kisses my nose to show me love
My prayer was now answered from the one above.
