Twenty Years of Spaces Filled

So much easier to pack the car,
no litter box. no carrier -
space for other things.

So much easier at motels,
unloading it all and
no hide and seek
at morning departure -
less stress and time 
for other things.

At home, no litter box in the hall,
a space now for shoes and boots and
in the cupboard where the Fancy Feast
and Temptation treats were found,
space now for, I don't know, other stuff.

So much room, so empty,
that space within our hearts...

I know, we free ourselves of a burden, of sorts, and extra responsibility, but when they pass, we bear an even greater burden... Sorry for your loss.
