BEAN by Karl & Lisa / Mister & Lady

Upon this day I reminisce
With sadness and regret
The loss of my beloved
Special “child” who was my pet.

It’s been a steady longing
Wishing you’d return to me …
For though you left I cannot “set you free”.

Though time may make it easier,
To go from day to day …
No one can understand the
“Special” role your life did play.

For every day you were a part,
Of love and joy and life …
You had a way that focused me
And lessened daily strife.

I’d hurry home to see your face,
Behind that window pane;
Where wiggles, hugs and cuddles
Brightened up the worst of days.

And now I sit, with eyes tear filled,
You are not by my side;
And when I see the window,
It is bare and bleak inside.

Emotions, they are raw today,
I’m simply torn apart …
For hollow, wrenching feelings
Tear apart this very heart.

An emptiness, that’s deeper than
The oceans … fill my soul;
A painful hunger bites my
Inner self beyond control.

For though time will heal the daily wounds
I wore upon my sleeve,
I shelter from the world outside
Just what you meant to me.

No children was I blessed to have,
My womb was barren … yet,
You filled the void my darling one,
My sweet and lovely pet.

To me, you were more human
Than some others I have known …
You gave such love and tenderness;
T’was deep within your soul.

Today as we walk around this home we’ve lived …
without you to share this with, I get no joy
from it.

I see you as I turn each step,
I watch for you each day …
Oh little one, I miss you so,
… Much more than words can say.


Our unconditional love,
