Child Shares

My eyes want to open,

But body warm and cosy beneath the blankets

Night light glows still in the dark

I hear the patter of tiny feet on the stairs

There is a pause … I lay in anticipation…

Then begins the small sound

Of cats crunching biscuits

And their bell taps the metal bowl tunefully

I know that sound,

All is well with the world

And I slip back into sleep
