Sunday Pause (Paws): The Conversation

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and hopefully enjoy taking a little time to read a poem I wrote. It’s a conversation between Cino & I.


You brought me into your home
From that place you set me free
We’ve been together for a while
But do you really know me?

I first saw you online
And then drove miles to adopt you
You convinced me you were the one
With that look and meow I knew

You keep me safe and fed
Even though sometimes you make me wait
Minutes between my meals
Uh hem…I need to set you straight

I love it when you decide
It’s time for you to eat
Your persistent meows and stares
Until you get that treat

You play with me
When I am ready to chase
That little red light
And toy balls all over the place

You’re so funny when you crouch
And you’re in position to play
And you wiggle your little bottom
“I’m ready to pounce” you say

I know you have to work
I miss you when you’re gone
When I’m asleep taking my nap
I dream of you all day long

When I shake my keys
And say to you “bye bye”
I see your eyes looking up at me
And I walk out the door with a sigh

The first toy that you gave me

Was my favorite little “mousey”
Then a new toy showed up
And now my bestie is “Owlie”

You’re so nice to share with me
Your very favorite toy
Thanks for leaving it there to greet me
Coming home it brings me such joy

I throw myself on the floor
When I’m in the mood to cuddle
I do need that lovey time
So there is no need to be subtle

You bring a smile to my face
When you throw yourself on the floor
I love our “hugsies and kissies” time
We really need to do it more

I don’t like loud noises
And I really hate thunder
But you find places for me
To go and hide under

It’s hard to see you scared
I wish I could take it away
I ask for you to be comforted
When I sit down and I pray

Sometimes when I’m sitting there
Some tickly thing you bring
You stick it in my mouth
I really don’t like that thing

I know you do not like it
And that’s why you try to hide
But I need to brush your teeth
So you need to open wide

Sometimes I need to hear
How sweet and pretty I am
I love to soak it all in
And enjoy it whenever I can

I love to sing those things to you
As your eyes drift open and closed
Your tail wagging back and forth
And I even see you curl your toes

I’ve learned to trust you
We understand each other I can see
My question is now answered
You really do know me

To me you are family
You’re not a “something” but a who
Yes my love I’ve taken the time
I do really know you!
