My Light

There are some days 

when life just gets me down

but when I see I'm in this haze

There's someone who I've found


He can't speak our language

and has tiny paws with pointed claws 

whenever I'm in anguish

His whiskers hide my flaws


His perfect pink nose

match his puffy paw pads

he makes my face glow

In a way it never had


These cloudy, sad moments

were like a heavy tumor

my heart is no longer broken

Because of my cat, Boomer

My family
