Where Are You in the Rainbow?

Are you behind the curtain,

the wall of doubt

that keeps surrounding me

each time I try to hold

your hand

or hear your voice

again?


Is it a hide-and-seek game

we are playing

or are you truly gone,

leaving our home to face storms

and paws who loved us

uncertain

of where you are

or when the next cuddle

will be?


If you need time to think,

have a talk with blue moon

when you come back

the threshold, walls,

our kittens, and me

will be smiling

happy to be a family

for all tomorrows

that are ours.

I haven’t lost you

if a memory

is strong enough

to help you

stay.
