The endless days with no escape
Thoughts of you in distant place
One picture printed on my mind
Eyes closed or open I see your face.
Joy and sadness fill my days
My heart and soul are aching.
I long to see you soon again
To end the eternal waiting.

I agree with Pushinfaders about the cats. The young woman is the center of attention and the eye should not be distracted from her. Everything else is a frame. The cats do not figure, directly or indirectly, in the poem. A well selected piece to the atmosphere and mood of it all. All that said, this is a wonderful render.
I have to say though I'm a cat fan that they don't do anything for me here... I didn't notice them at first, the sitting girl is the main focus of attention, and as soon as my eye was drawn to her I was reminded of the work of Caspar David Friedrich... there's a particular painting I've been trying to google for the past short while with no success, which I think this is reminiscent of... but managed to find this which is indicative of his style (if you're not familiar with it) and, I think, in the same vein. And this is definitely a compliment as I'm a real admirer of his work... I think lose the cats and you've got a real classic image - well done!
I am also with the anti cat brigade Ionel, but to whom does the image belong?? The artist sees it so, and I am not one to deny the artist. There is a saying 'Quite as the church mice' so if the church has mice why not cats?? I like how you have left your mark on the right of the arch as well, it looks like it belongs. Excellent work really, in spite of the cats. #;0) Bravo!!!!!
