I miss my boy, Salem

It's been over five months now and I still can't look out my back window without thinking about my Salem. He was a beautiful, sleek, black cat with green eyes. He was just five years old when he was struck by a car or truck. I don't know which; they didn't stop. I got him from a shelter when he was six weeks old. He jumped into my arms and stayed there. It was like he was meant to be with me. I can't get the picture out of my mind of his lying in the street. At first I thought it must be some other cat.....he was so careful and wary of cars. Then I saw his yellow collar and his tags. It was more painful than losing my parents. I moved here in August. I had to make sure he knew the area and had his felv vaccine series. I took him out a little bit each day staying with him. After that I used to let him out and check on him periodically to see if he was okay. He always came when I called him. He and I had a language of our own. I have periods, especially lately that I cry so hard, it's almost primitive. I have his ashes and his picture on a shelf in my kitchen with a single candle that I light every night. I'm sorry I ever moved. He had such a nice home where he could go outside and run around.He was only outside for a little over a month. I feel so bad and guilty. I worked all night the night before and I fell asleep instead of bringing him in which I usually did when I was going to sleep.
