Five years today…

Still miss you. Still think of you every time I carefully trap a spider under a cup and take it outside instead of killing it, every time I keep a watchful eye on a turtle crossing our driveway to make sure it’s not heading toward the road, every time I see or hear someone cringing back from some reptile in the pet store or on TV, when I can only see how beautiful the creature is.

And when I’ve moved a turtle off the road, or massaged a medicine-soaked cotton ball into a stray cat’s ears, or surprised a deer into staring at me when I open the door to bring in the mail, I’ve always found myself saying the same words, and I realize they’re yours.

You’re all right, softly, soothingly, you’re all right.
