Skandl by Beth / Your Mom Forever

I feel alone again today.
The same every day since Skandl went away.
We were together for more than twenty years
and I can not stop the constant flow of tears.

I held her in my arms as she fell asleep.
I held her close and continued to weep.
As her eyes closed and I heard her last purr,
Out of anguish I buried my face in her fur.

Skandl forgive me for what I have done.
You suffered so much. I felt your time had come.
I’ll never forget you. In my heart you will stay.
When my time comes we’ll be together that day.


In Loving Memory of Skandl,
