This is a poem about being startled in the middle of the night by a pet that wants to keep you company.
As I lie half-asleep in the middle of the night
I hear something that gives me a fright
Now I am awake, my eyes wide open
I see a shadow that is moving towards me
At first I panic, yet I already know
What is it that is moving so slow
It is my favorite furry cat
That came over for a synchronized nap
She came to keep me company on this lonely night
And to keep me warm while cuddling up
She lies down close to me
And spreads herself out as far as I can see
I immediately can feel her warmth spread over me
I can even hear her breathe
She purrs throughout the night
Keeping me asleep under her magical lullaby
