We grew up together, he and I. When I was a kitten, I’d pull up my special chair, and we’d look at the world together in wonder, as only children could. Everything and everyone fascinated him, and he showed me that all people, rich and poor alike, had something interesting about them, something worth knowing.
And then the years passed. I grew up, we grew apart. I guess I took him for granted, assumed he’d always be there. And now… I just feel so… empty.
