The Price I Pay

by Mark A. Dye

The nuzzles that you give to me
you give so often and for free
you never ask a price I pay
to hold you close and let you stay

I stroke your ears and hear your purr
and run my hands on silken fur
you gaze on me with eyes of green
the sweetest sight I've ever seen

You sleep all still, rolled in a ball
I think this is the thrill of all
and something's happened here within
I feel my head begin to spin

And now I know the price I pay
the one I'll pay to let you stay
you hold my heart with furry glove
the price I pay is all my love.
