Snuggle Cat

By John I. Blair

You love to curl up by my chest,
Near to me, touching me,
Tail tight around your legs,
Paw across your pink nose.

Was this how it felt, I ask,
Many years ago
With your mother in your nest
(Where, I have no clue)?

It seems to be enough for you
Basking in my warmth,
Feeling my skin, my steady pulse,
My breath upon your deep fur,

Enough for me
To know you're there,
Trusting me implicitly,
Melting into me asleep.

(c)2020 John I. Blair, 5/8/2020
