" Dreaming" by Malcolm Chant

“Mark A. Dye
I live a very simple life
with cats in every space
But when I got to bed at night
they sleep upon my face

Now to live without the luxury
of cats in every space
Would be to live a sorry life
in a very sorry place.

I’ve never been without a cat
and this I can uphold
I’ll have a cat in every space
Until I’m gray and old.

For every fool should be aware
that cats are complex creatures
they live about in every space
And give the house its features

My Formative years were spent between two wartime airfields, so each night was spent sleeping in shelters, and school was always tense as dogfights were being fought overhead,
We made our own amusement in those days, and presents were second hand wooden toys if any could be found.
My teenage life found me on Motorbikes and fast cars.
My Later life was dogged by peaks and troughs of health problems.

    Adorable photo. Your poem sounds like it was written about my house. I have 9 cats whom I love dearly except, when I’m trying to find a space to sleep at night and, when I’m trying to watch TV and they all want to sit in my lap….. Hahahah!!!!!! Love is always easy to get at my house.

  • hee hee Morning Carolyn, we rescuded her a while, ago she is such a loving little cat, follows me everywhere, and like you sleeps on my chest at night,
