I have, in my lifetime, been well appointed.
My home dressed with the finest furniture,
my body draped with clothing most could not afford.
…and yet, happiness escaped my grasp.
I have, in my lifetime, enjoyed the wealth
of family, friends, or lovers who provided
respite from my countless, bad decisions,
..and laugh at the antics of my past
Now, my happiness is covered in fur,
caring not that a once lovely body
no longer attracts, my face is without allure.
…and smile as their eyes shine at me with love.
