Cat Poem

My Cats

I know. I know.
They are limited, have different needs and concerns.
but I watch and learn from them. 
I like the little they know, which is so much.
They complain but never worry.
They walk with a surprising dignity.
They sleep with a direct simplicity that humans just can’t understand.

Their eyes are more beautiful than our eyes.
and they can sleep twenty  hours ­a day without
hesitation or remorse.

When I am feeling low
all I have to do is
watch my cats and my courage returns.

                                  By Charles Bukowski
                                  May he rest in peace!
