For a harmonic potential, which is the special shape-invariant potential discussed in our paper [1], the relation between the ground state and the first-excited-state wave functions [Eq. (2)] should be . . .

Therefore, we have shown that one cannot find a closed form of the kinetic-energy density for the harmonic oscillator.
