Soft paws whisper across the bed spread,
A gentle meow is heard
Followed by a delicate purr.
Pawing, patting lightly, at my face,
Soft warm nose pushes hair away.
“It’s time to get up” she seems to say,
“It’s time to start a new day!” She purrs then makes her way,
Down my legs, across my knees, to edge of the bed.
There, peeping are my toes to which she takes a bite,
“What the heck!” I scream, jumping up,
as I see a tail whipping out of sight.
