Im fairly new but I would say "no". rm removes a file and there isn't a recycle bin like winbloze. Maybe some kind of
disk utility could get it back. I know when windows deletes a file even if it doesn't go to 'recycle' it's not really deleted but still on the disk unavailable to the OS. The OS simply knows that this space s available for use and a simple undelete utility can retrieve the file. I don't know if this is true in Linux as I'm new.

There's something for everyone but there's nothing for me .... because Im not everyone"

I just forgot to tell you. It is important that you don't use that
partition before undelete. ( Keep it safe before you go to that
link ).
