It's Really Me

Hello Everyone

I am Hermie

Just a little black cat

I am filled with every idea you ever had

When you go to sleep I carry on where you left off

Then when you awake

I sit still by your bedside and listen to you struggle to get up

It is always something with you

Life is never a dull moment

You look at me straight in the eye and give me one big hug

You make your bed and put me in the middle to play

I shake my head

Can't you see my friends our stuffed animals and what am I suppose to do

So I sit all day watch the sun come up and go down

I wait for my chance

When you come home again and then I have to wait longer

Until you get all cleaned up and ready to go to bed

Then I hear you say your prayers and tell me all about your day

You crawl into bed and prop me up in a corner

I watch as you close your eyes

That's when I come alive

I go on every adventure and explore the world you missed

I try to tell you

But you never listen

You keep talking and say wouldn't if be funny if Hermie really did talk

Then you quickly dismiss that thought as impossible

Well I am proof

That one stuffed cat Hermie does exsist

I am all black except for my white face,paws and the tip of my tail

Ooops I forgot my belly and the inside of my ears

So this is my story and if you lend an ear

I will tell you how I travel with great speed

I am the fastest cat you ever did see

Why Hermie is the fastest cat ?

I don't know

But what I do know will shock you

So if you are ready for a treat

We are not talking about an ice cream late at night

We are talking about something twice as nice

So if I get lost

You might have to help me from time to time

I will take all the help I can get

So off with a bounce to a new world

That you might of missed

Not for long because I have your back

I have a friend called Jump'n Jack Flash

He is craziest cat

Who never sleeps

So when tomorrow morning comes I will fill you in

Of where I went and where I have been

That is a cute poem! When I was a kid, I wished my stuffed animals would come to life, especially my Foxy (which I still have, 30 years later).

Thanks for sharing this with us, and have a great day!

Very nice poem, Dream-On! As a kid I had a white cat with a zipper on my bed; I could hide my pyjama in the cat :-)

I have a collection on stuffed animals... I suppose it's the kid in me.... I will have to let them go to have a real life when (if) I have grandchildren :-)

Enjoy your day!

epbooks There is nothing more adorable than a nice soft cuddly stuffed animal.Most of my wifes stuffed animals have been given away except for three of them.They still connect with a very special loving spot.It is amazing how much love they still can hold.Thanx so much for reading and sharing. Have a great day.
