Ball Of Fuzz

I stared in vain through window pane

as I was on my own.

And lonely I, would sometimes cry

as I sat here alone.

 

The wind was wild and snow had piled

up high on window sill.

Yet I was warm despite the storm,

despite infrequent chill.

 

My eyes in blur, saw something stir.

I raced outside to see.

It was a sight.  I held it tight

and said, "You're safe with me."

 

So cold she was.  I know because

she shivered for an hour.

Sad eyes were blue and hungry too.

She drank, though milk was sour.

 

Then trusting she, laid down on me -

curled tightly in my lap.

So soft her fur and quiet purr.

She took a prolonged nap.

 

As seasons came, she was the same -

so tame, so loving, swell.

And so it was, I know because

my mem-ry serves me well.

 

She was a friend right to the end

and trusting as could be.

Though snow had blown, the sun once shone

on ball of fuzz and me.

 

I stare in vain through window pane.

Again, I'm on my own.

And lonely I, will sometimes cry

as I sit here alone.
