The Poetry of Brian Langley
This is a Sonnet - I've only written a few of these.
This one got me in the top 15 of a Sonnet competition run by the Victorian Shakespearian Society in 2010 -
They published it in a booklet titled "The 155th Sonnett"
She shares my life, she shares my bed
Each day I wake and see her there
Breathing softly, her golden hair
Beside me on the pillow spread.
She looks at me with words unsaid
And silently I say a prayer
Of hope, she always will be there
My sweet and lovely sleepyhead
Tis time to rise and face the day
I watch her as from sleep she stirs
And stretches in her sensual way
I get our breakfast, mine and hers
Just milk for her, same everyday.
She laps it up, then sits and purrs
