Friendship and Dead Cats

This is my friend
He buried our cat
That was the introduction
Or part of it
A relationship defined in death
Rooted in a response
To grief
How often it’s true
Deep love
Found in hard places
Good friendships
Forged in daily struggles
Timeless trust
And sorrow’s soothing
Create connections 
That span the years
More often our weakness
Finds their strength
Than our talents
Find like hearts
We need others
To be who we cannot
So that we can be for them
And others
Who we truly are

Who would you call
To bury your cat?
