Some Sort of Happy

I feel the sleep needles
in my toes
and know it won't be long
before my lids
give in
and shut.

My sweet faced feline
nuzzles in for the night
and surprises me
with a lick
from her sandpaper tongue.
She's found her spot
in the crook of my elbow
and once she's settled,
I'm settled too.

This isn't the life
I pictured
all those years ago
when I imagined
what my 30s
might look like.
But it is my life
and it's good for now.
