Finding You

Finding you
was like finding a light
so deep in the dark
that it barely shone through.
Finding you
was like being thrown a raft
on tumultuous seas
with skies less than blue.
Finding you
is like finding myself
when I thought I was lost
but really I was waiting
for you.

I think I am going to be sick
and I don’t know why
since I had so little to eat
and no, that’s not a lie.
I had my breakfast,
my lunch,
my dinner,
and then the sun did rise,
so I had another course
and a little dessert surprise.
Then I had a bath
and ate a clump of fur
then another meal,
just a few bites, I’m sure.
Then there was the nap
which left my tummy grumbling
so I made my way from bed to bowl
the whole way, stumbling.
Another bath there was,
so some more fur indeed
and then you came home
to bring me what I need.
A fish hits the spot,
each and every time,
but maybe all that fur
should be a digestive crime.

You Sure Did

For someone who never wanted to play the game,
you sure have the rules down pat.
For someone who never wanted the fame,
you sure know how to tip your hat.
For someone who never needed the praise,
you sure look good on that horse.
For someone who never fell for the craze,
you sure fell right on course.
