Flesh and blood, heart and soul.
My heart is small and furry, pressing
my face into her body, all the stress
melts away and while she is in my arms,
I am at peace and float among the stars.
While I am floating among the heavens, traveling
along clouds of rainbow sherbet, I am reminded
once more that I only have miles2go before I
lay down my head to go to the final resting place.
