As the fireworks explode, I see you appear,
with sparks in your fur and gold on your ear,
Your eyes are as bright as a firework in the night,
and all the spots on your fur are as blue as the sea.
Your claws are menacing and ready for a fight,
you show your teeth gleaming in the fire light.
I lean forward and feel your fur,
it's as soft as a petal on a spring flower,
I've seen an experiment of colour before...
You disappear into the light.
I was with my guardian but only for a night.
