Arlene Millman -
Diamond is his brand new name
No one knows from whence he came
Settled in a loving home
No more need to search or roam.
A diamond shape on his face
In a conspicuous place
A label the world can see
Stands for strength and harmony.
Diamond, tame and kind and sweet
Wandered and begged in the street
Hoping with his breaking heart
For a chance at life, a start.
Diamonds's fervent daily prayer:
"Please, please send someone to care
Water, food, a clean soft bed
A safe place to rest my head."
Diamond felt so sad and blue
Then one day, his dream came true!
A secure home, filled with love
A priceless gift, from above.
