You Will Learn to Feel Again.

Updated: Jun 11

Long after my

Childhood cat was gone,

My sleepy foot nestled

Under a pillow at college,

And instinctively my body said,

“Ope! Don’t shove Frisky

Off the bed!”

Then I remembered

Frisky was an Ohio cat,

And I was in Kentucky,

And I had already said goodbye

On the bathroom floor

With tears

And the tears came back,

Because my foot remembered her

And loved her

All the same

5 years later.
