title says it all
Tail tucked between your legs,
Confusion in your eyes
I know its hard to understand
That someone heard your cries.
When loneliness is all you know
And pain is all you feel
And no one can be trusted,
And hungers all too real.
Thats the time the Angels see you
And let you know theyre there.
Thats when they send their messengers
The hearts that love and care.
The medicine to make you well,
Good food to make you strong,
And finally to help you learn,
That hugs are never wrong.
The perfect place must then be found,
The home where you can live
Secure and safe and happy,
With joy to get and give.
When you reach your forever home,
Your place to feel whole,
The angels smile and off they go-
To save another soul.
From a Blind Dog
I cannot see you Mommy when you cuddle me so near,
And yet I know you love me, it's in the words I hear.
I cannot see you Daddy when you hold me by your side,
But still I know you love me when you tell me so with pride.
I cannot see to run and play out in the sun so bright,
For here inside my tiny head it's always dark as night.
I cannot see the treats you give when I am extra good,
But I can wag my tail in thanks just like a good dog should.
"It cannot see! The dog's no good!" is what some folks might say. "It can't be trained! It'll never learn! It must be put away!"
But not you Mom and Daddy, you know that it's all right,
Because I love you just as much as any dog with sight.
You took me in, you gave me love, and we will never part
Because I'm blind with just my eyes, I see you in my heart.
