This poem was written a while ago but it was about my own cat who was always there for me when I cried at times I was at school.  I wonder if you have had a similar furry companion who has been there for you at times that were difficult, no matter if its a cat, dog, guinea pig or something else!

My Furry Companion

©The Strawberry Post

You are my friend, you’re always there,
You never seem to have a care.
You sit with me when I am down,
Your face never with a frown.
You look at me though I cannot,
My eyes in tears, red, bloodshot.
You sit and stay and cuddle me,
Until the time that I can see.
That things are not as bad as I,
Thought they were, no need to cry.
You are my friend, you’re always there,
You always seem to have a care.
