in memoriam

i have not forgotten you.
i have not stopped loving you, or remembering that i love you.
listen,
if i never touch you again,
i will always be touching your absence.
did you think i had forgotten that?

  1. Someday over the Rainbow Bridge Smokey will be there waiting for you,tail wagging and a smile on her face.
