Linus sat beside me. Now I knew of his true form, his stealth in appearing at my side with no warning no longer startled me. I grew up with cats. “They miss you too, Little Sparrow.” “You know I had cats, Linus?” “I know their names, Little Sparrow. I know of the love you gave them. Scruffy, Jasper, Crystal and Cat. And Dog. I know that when you were nine you had to move and Cat wouldn't come. Three months later you could return and Cat was still there.” Unbidden, a tear drop fell onto my knee. Memories of finding Jasper, at the roadside, hit by a car. “It was instant, Little Sparrow. He did not suffer.”
We sat awhile as I remembered my loved ones. The way Scruffy would return Mum’s Mum look. The look of exasperation only a Mum can give.
“Why now, Linus? Why am I remembering things from 30 years ago?” “Because, Little Sparrow, you need to heal. You have held the hurt inside for so long. It is your strength. Also, it is your weakness. Let it go, Little Sparrow.”
Don't worry about the things you can't change, only the things you can.
