Purring

She used to squash in between us
and purr all night, loud and deep.
Now she sprawls in the space
where his pillow used to be.
When I reach to stroke her
she licks my fingers, and lately
she is beginning to purr again, a little.

  2. beautiful in what's said and what is left out - and felt perhaps the more deeply for the omission...
