The Older Cat
not so young or fair of face.
there'll be times I want my space.
sleep more then be awake
give me time... your heart I'll take.
an older cat, my ways are set.
you may wonder what you'll get.
I'm calm and wise and you might find
I can give you peace of mind.
be passive - not want to play
before you know they'll come a day
you're sad or down, I'll take my nap
you'll find love sleeping on your lap.
the youngsters leave their cage.
lives are new... an empty page.
an older cat can teach you much.
all I ask is a gentle touch.
