*The Following Poem appears in a short book by Nolan Storey called “Chaotic Hope.” It can be purchased at Blue Cypress Books.
A Cat is a secret keeper,
She’ll give none of yours away.
A cat is a friend in sorrow,
She’ll share your burdens any day.
A cat is there when times are good,
She’ll make your joy deeper.
A cat is there when you fall ill,
She’ll help fend off the reaper.
A cat brings love,
Life, warmth, and beauty.
To feed her and love her back;
your only duty.
A cat’s love
Means never having to face life alone,
My cat’s meows
Keep compassion deep in my bones.
