Today we lost a dear sweet friend

Today we lost our cat Oreo to circumstances unknown but none the less we have an empty space in our hearts and our home today.  The only comfort I have right now is that she went in her sleep so sweet and peaceful.

They will not go quietly,
the cats who've shared our lives.
In suptle ways they let us know
their spirit still survives.
Old habits still make us think
we hear a meow at the door.
Or step back when we drop
a tasty morsel on the floor.
Our feet still go around the place
the food dish used to be,
And, sometimes, coming home at night,
we miss them terribly.
And although time may bring new friends
and a  new food dish to fill,
That one place in our hearts
belongs to them. . . and always will
