THIS OLD CAT

I'm getting on in years;

My coat is turning grey.

My eyes have lost their luster;

My hearing's just okay.

*

I spend my whole day dreaming

Of conquests in my past,

Lying near a sunny window,

Waiting for its warm repast.

*

I remember our first visit;

I was coming to you free,

Hoping you would take me in

And keep me company.

*

I wasn't young or handsome;

Two years I'd roamed the street.

There were scars upon my face;

I hobbled on my feet.

*

I could sense your disappointment

As I left my prison cage.

Oh, I hoped you would accept me

And look beyond my age.

*

You took me out of pity;

I accepted without shame.

Then you grew to love me,

And I admit the same.

*

I have shared with you your laughter;

You have wet my fur with tears.

We've come to know each other well

Throughout these many years.

*

Just one more hug this morning

Before you drive away;

And know I'll think about you

Throughout your busy day.

*

The time we've left together

Is a treasured time at that.

My heart is yours forever;

I promise . . . This Old Cat.
