storyrainthejournal: (what?)

I have a little cat in my lap

He is bony in places and

Has shrunk a bit in the last year

As have I

Both of us

A little more fragile

The white parts of his fur

Aren’t always as clean

As they once were and

Sometimes

I have to wash a little schmutz off his nose

He still puts a paw over one of my hands to hold it there

So I must type one-handed

And we both sigh

Only, I think, because there is comfort in a sigh, because it is a breath

Taken deep
