I know that sentence might seem strange to some but not to me.
A friend is someone who cares as much, no actually more, about stray feral cats
than they do about empty things like money and power.
A friend looks at you with her piercing eyes, looking into your soul,
scouring the dark places,
Are you OK?
A friend is lost in a senseless moment of time,
taking away the opportunity to say goodbye, farewell,
or I love you
for being an animal lover,
lover of the poor,
and sad in the world.
Never again in this material plane will I see her to say
I love you,
