He seeks warmth and comfort,

In a loving home.


He waits outside,

Hoping one day to be welcomed in with a loving embrace.


He sits patiently,

Day and night,

For some solace from the rain.


He’s silent and affectionate,

Yet loved by the humans who feed him.


But they’ve yet,

To let him come in.


Two cats watch him by the back door,

Silently questioning his motives.


But yet,

They too want to welcome him in.


He’s family,

That looks so much like them.


They know,

They can see it in his eyes.


And in the way he tilts his head,

When the humans come by to pet him.


They hear it in his meow,

When they hear him calling for them.


The two cats,

Are just as curious about him,

As he is about them.


Yet they say nothing,

Knowing the humans make the final decision.


But they know,

One day, he’ll be brought in.


And they’ll be there,

To welcome him home.
