I’m so glad you came into my life, unexpectedly, in a time of need. You help me keep moving and keep off the couch. You warm my feet when they are cold and pester me when I’m feeling old. You are so happy and full of energy, creating joy for all you are around. With ears, four legs, and a tail you have made it possible for me to not worry about the future and enjoy the here and now. You helped me go from a dark point to a bright one. You showed me a way to connect and not feel small through your love for all.
O’glorous sleep. You call to me but rarely come. You make me crave your peaceful embrace. Why do you continue to elude me? I feel you calling me in my tired bones and burning eyes. My body aches for your warm embrace. Why do you elude me? Why do you stay away? Don’t you know I need you so? If only you would come and wash over me with your sleep touch. Yet you continue to tease me almost every night. Letting me get close to you then pulling away. I’m begging you — come to me on this night. Oh, how I wish for you to alleviate my exhaustion with sweet dreams until the morning light.
