Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

I haven’t seen anyone for days.

My bones ache for attention,

As I see you walk away.

It didn’t use to be that way.

I guess I got to be too much to handle

As I now sit alone in my deserted land.

I have no voice of my own.

I need you to speak for me.

The days are long as I waste away.

Nowhere to go, I pull at the chains,

Welts at my neck, blood, misery and pain.

Can anybody speak for me?

As hunger rots my core, I wonder where you are,

And why you have left me here to suffer.

What agony did I cause to deserve this punishment?

Can anybody speak for me?

Do you even remember my name?

When your pellets silence my

Howling cries in the night?

With not even a grassy patch

To rest my weary head upon,

Dirt is all that remains from my constant pacing.

Can someone please speak for me?

I lay here dying and unloved.

As I am being tossed away with the banana peels

And other gluttonous garbage,

I needed you to speak for me.

Too old, too worn, too broken, no way.
Way past his time, he can’t run and play.
Then they shake their heads slowly and go on their way.
A little old man, arthritic and sore,
It seems I am not wanted anymore.
I once had a home, I once had a bed,
A place that was warm, and where I was fed.
Now my muzzle is grey, and my eyes slowly fail.
Who wants a dog so old and so frail?
My family decided I didn’t belong,
I got in their way, my attitude was wrong.
Whatever excuse they made in their head,
Can’t justify how they left me for dead.
Now I sit in this cage, where day after day,
The younger dogs get adopted away.
When I had almost come to the end of my rope,
You saw my face, and I finally had hope.
You saw through the grey, and the legs bent with age,
And felt I still had life beyond this cage.
You took me home, gave me food and a bed,
And shared your own pillow with my poor tired head.
We snuggle and play, and you talk to me low,
You love me so dearly, you want me to know.
I may have lived most of my life with another,
But you outshine them with a love so much stronger.
And I promise to return all the love I can give,
To you, my dear person, as long as I live.
I may be with you for a week, or for years,
We will share many smiles, you will no doubt shed tears.
And when the time comes that God deems I must leave,
I know you will cry and your heart, it will grieve.
And when I arrive at the Bridge, all brand new,
My thoughts and my heart will still be with you.
And I will brag to all who will hear,
Of the person who made my last days so dear.
