Struggling through the winter storm
Jacket zipped up nice and warm
Against the snow drifting all around
It built up so quickly on the ground

Dollars and cents I had not many
Could almost say hardly a penny
Christmas lights flashing in stores
Not only here but on distant shores

One of the lucky ones just to be
That's what I was trying to tell me
When faintly I heard her pitiful cry
From the gutter I was walking by

She sat there in the cold white snow
Nothing to eat and nowhere to go
Holding her gently in my left palm
I picked her up to save from harm

Loneliness fluttered wings and left
No longer did I feel lost and bereft
Tiny little kitty felt exactly the same
Purring loudly as I gave her a name

My Christmas gift sent from above
Angels matching our eternal love
Snowball and I still a loving pair
After heaven showed me how to care

A Cats Purr

"Cats make one of the most satisfying sounds in the world: they purr ...

A purring cat is a form of high praise, like a gold star on a test paper. It is reinforcement of something we would all like to believe about ourselves - that we are nice."

Roger A Caras
