Just We Two

In my file cabinet there is a folder for pets.  It had paid bills, information on Brandy, Molly, and Spirit.  Sadly Brandy and Molly are no longer with me so I really don’t need the folder.  I stand at the cage and say there is you and me now Spirit.  No need for a file labeled pets.  Oh I have the cats, Libby, and Erin which I care about and help take care of but it is not the same.  I still feel tears gather in my eyes and a lump in my throat when I stop to remember what I have lost. They were my family especially after Jay pasted.

That also brings to mind people I have loved that are ill, or infirmed now that I can no longer help or see. Yes it is just we two left in this little family of days gone by.  There are people in my life that I love and care about that care about me  but this is different, good but not the same.   I am lucky to have these people in my life and would not trade them.   But I can’t quite explain this feeling that I have.
