Relax Before Bed

Soft white fur

Velvet silky coat

Double layer

Ready for winter

Yet winter not here

I pet coat

Stroke my hands

Through softness

Fur parts like

Blades of grass

I am calmed

She is relaxed

Until she says it’s over

I look at your picture

wishing you would jump out;
nudge my arm with a:
“I want you to pet me now!”

For I want to pet you again
as I miss stroking my fingers
along your fluffy fur coat.

The feel of smooth fur
which gave me strength
when I needed most of all.

How I miss your fur
which I loved to
place my face against
to find comfort in
your double furry coat.

But, you don’t jump out
as I long to be with you again.
