Fiona the cat, often needy, crawling all over me
sleeping soundly by my side, purring in her sleep

All she needed
was a couple of strokes
from my hand

The night deepens
and the Pandora music
sooths my mind

“When it Shines,” “Here Comes the Sun”
music that lives in my spirit and memory

I will never forget certain
moments and songs in my life
Certain loves and losses

certain turning points
certain losses, saying goodbye
I will not forget

the mountains, the ocean
the stars and moon in the sky
the darkness and the light

I cherish this moment
but also the memories
that have shaped me

I meditate on memories
of cowardice and courage
I have learned from both
