A Poem About Pet Loss
Pets can be so different,
And their owners too;
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!
