We read A Wrinkle in Time
Over and over again.
Played games
Only we understood.
Talked late
Till we fell asleep

Every long winters night,
He was with me,
Keeping me warm,
I listened to her breathing,
Her whiskers tickling me,
A purr escaping every few breaths.

When I was sick
She stayed with me,
My only constant companion.
When I threw up again,
She would lick me,

I held her until she was still,
Until her eyes went glassy,
And she was cold.
