  This Morning

Eyes open wide awake –no sleep for me
I’ll take my book sit on the couch, read
As I turn the page I hear you
You slide between my leg, rest your head
My eyes meet your eyes
They transmit your love
After all these years we know each other too well
Do you know what mine say?
Can you feel the warmth that I feel for you?
My actions have always wanted to give you a feeling of trust
But now in your simple movement the spell is broken
You express your want
You move closer to my chest rubbing your face-you want me to caress you –
I do

So, no reading for me
You are telling me what you want
So I stop—hugging you to me, telling you what you want to hear.

Come Sheena let me feed you now—where’s your brother Simon
You CATS always get your way
I have no life!!

LOL ! I know just want you mean and just how you feel. I have four of them and you just can't concentrate on anything else when they want something! Who owns whom is always a question with cats!
