A poem.

I held you in my arms for the first time,

and stroked your tiny cheek as you looked up at me,

I knew then, as you let out a sneeze,

that I already loved you completely.

I was afraid to bring you home,

afraid I'd do something wrong,

But I promised you that I'd try my best,

and you'd grow up big and strong.

I watched you all day and night,

too afraid to let my eyes stray,

but as I watched you peacefully sleep,

I knew it would all be okay.

Now you're grown, and I am so proud,

And I'm not afraid to share it,

My love for you will never end,

my sweet and loving ferret.
