My Friend

My favorite thing is watching you
as you sit on my windowsill.

Your twitching nose and golden coat
gleams in the morning light.

I watch you
on your hind legs,
having your morning meal.
You look right into my eyes,
and I am deeply moved.

So precious is this sight, I smile ecstatically.

I wish everyone
would take the time
to see the beauty of the world.

To realize it is there for you
morning, noon, and night.

Nature and its treasures are found everywhere.
Just stop and look and you will see.
There’s magic in the air.

How can you say that there is no time?
when the morning has just arrived.

Open your heart and enjoy life
before your time has gone.
