SATISFACTION LIKE A SATED CAT
She lies with you on the bed,, content,
purrs as you stroke her head, shoulders back,
rub her tummy, enjoy her fur’s softness,
press your cheek against her.
You have no regrets, no desires,
no need to apologize or forgive.
Let her warmth and love surround you,
as the day draws to a close.
