As the sun rises slowly creeping into the pale blue sky, hues of yellow spreading before my eyes I ponder the bigger questions of life.
What is love…
And as I open the front door and you scream in delight, half jumping half climbing my legs, I know what love is. As you rest upon my shoulder rubbing your head into my hair, tangling your claws, I know what love is. As you settle across my breast, paws at rest, lips wet against my cheek, I know what love is. As you look me with those tiny little eyes as I carry you round beneath the sunrise, I know what love is.
