My Mother Lives Inside Me Valentine

When I get back from a trip
It takes the cat hours to trust
Me again I mean she’s honest
Enough to admit it’s not
Like nothing happened
You abandoned me
Don’t you remember
Waiting hours for your mother
Who never showed up
Don’t you remember how it felt
Until finally she just forgets all about it
Curling and purring in my lap
And yes I can feel and understand it now
Even if it took me years I whisper
