Simpler Times

They were simpler times
so many years ago
when I called you mine
and we went with the flow.

Now confusion reigns
and simplicity is gone
like my love for you
which was just a con.

The future is unclear,
the present, full of pain,
and yesterday seemed sunny
when really it was full of rain.

Weather or Not

It’s not easy being furry
when the weather
just won’t change,
the heat won’t go away
and still my winter fur grows,
it’s strange.

Mother nature doesn’t know
what it’s like to be a cat
with a coat you can’t remove
when the temperature is hot.

Then the next day it’s so cold
and my coat is not enough.
Pass me a blanket,
this weather thing is tough.

Weather or Not


More often than not,
I think of you,
no matter where I am
or what I do.
The more time that passes,
the deeper I fall
into a love so strong,
I feel your heart call.
Nothing will come between
the simple look we share
nor can anything beat
this perfectly made pair.
