Love covered in fur

That bounds upon my lap

And settles there

Bright eyes that gaze into mine

And remind me that

Though no words are spoken

I am loved and needed

What a blessing

And what a gift

To share my life

With creatures that know no hate

Or bitterness or cruelty

These four-legged wonders

Who make my life better

In every way

Every day

I thank you, God

For all the animals

I have known

And for those

In the here and now

For furry kisses

Upon my brow

And for all the love

that is bestowed

  1. Thanks Lee – a little bit of nonsense to start the day. I do love animals – all animals, but the one who holds my heart captive right now happens to be a cat. And yes it is very nice….
