Lonely years

It's been three years today,

Three long and lonely years,

Since my sweet Takarra went away.

I miss her purr,

I miss her bites,

I miss stroking her soft spotted fur.

Time has healed my heartache now,

Time has lessened my sorrow,

But time cannot ease the guilt of where and how.

Her life only seven months short

when she died by my hands,

And nothing will ever forgive that hurt.

I'll never forget the day,

I started my dryer without looking inside it,

I stole her precious life away.

My Takarra never should have died,

Just take time to make sure your babies are safe,

Always stop and look inside.

Think of my angel and how she couldn't stay,

Please never make the same mistake I made.

Three long and lonely years ago today.
