Middle of the night, I reach out
To find her sleeping next to me.
I softly sigh as she starts to purr,
My world is right, sweet Sammy.
Weather’s warm, the sky is blue,
Perfect chance to finally unwind.
Alas, I cannot taste the kiss of peace,
For the storm that rages in my mind.
Although the temp is freezing cold,
We still could have some fun.
Look at Sammy over there,
Just sleeping in the sun.
My Mother told me many things,
Most of which I took to heart.
One that rings so true today is,
Too soon old and too late smart.
Saturday and the weather is great!
Time to do something rather tawdry.
Hold on a second, I’m an adult so
I better get started on the laundry…
