The Cat It is late, nearly half-past nine. You are asleep beside me. The clock on the wall is too loud. I need to buy another. This one is a cat, with eyes that move. I do not think I like the way... it looks at me, in the dark, in the night. I reach over to the light, and switch it off. The black immediately surrounds me. Yet I find... I am not afraid. He is with me. The room is quiet, and I can speak of the day, I can open my heart, and give Him my soul... as I am safe. Then I pray for my man, and all those I love. The days ahead are rough, and... full of thorns. We need to remember, there is yet, one last moment... to share. Waste it not. Meow. (Amen.)
