The InnocentsI sit cross-legged on the floor of the shelterThe Innocents by ValerieJoyLauria
A large cat named Garfield nestles happily in my lap
I rub his stomach; he gazes up into my eyes
His heart is full; my heart is full
But he has Feline Leukemia.
\I sit cross-legged on the floor of the shelter
An auburn cat named Tawny nestles happily in my lap
I stroke her back; she gazes up into my eyes
Her heart is full; my heart is full
But she has Feline HIV.
\This shelter will keep the innocents safe from storms, feed them,
Treat their illnesses for all their lives
But they need love.
Some find love, some don't.
Can you share your heart with the innocents?
