A Poem About Pet Loss

 

Pets can be so different,

And their owners too;

Different personalities

That come shining through…

 

When they’re no longer there

And only memories remain

We look back fondly at their quirks

Wishing to see them again.

 

Rosie was our pet, our cat

Much joy she brought us too,

I remember when we bought her home

It was so exciting and new…

 

She fitted in the carrier with another kitten,

Skitting here and there,

She was so funny

Yes we were smitten…

 

She had a little nook, a box

Where she often lay,

She’d pop her head up out of the top,

She really made our day!

 

A typical cat, she’d often play

And chase her tail around,

The Queen of funny she really was

A cat or maybe a clown!

 

When you lose a pet, a void appears

a massive gap is left

Empty bowls and beds, less noise, less ‘them’

Leave you feeling quite bereft

 

At times like these I remember

All the funny times and more,

Those snuggles on the sofa,

Cat food all over the floor!

 

Rosie, we will miss you,

But we’re glad your now at rest,

Your cheeky character, exploring nature,

You really were the best!

xXx

Sharing with… The Prompt ’embrace’ because the definition is to hold someone (which is what we did with snuggles with Rosie) or accept a change… (which is what we are doing now).
