I WOULD'VE DIED THAT DAY IF NOT FOR YOU
I would've given up on life, if not for your kind eyes.
I would have used my teeth in fear, if not for your gentle hand.
I would have left this life, believing that all humans don't care.
Believing there is no such thing as fur that isn't matted... skin that
isn't flea bitten,
Good Food and enough of it...
Beds to sleep on...Someone to love me...
to show me I deserve love...just because I exist.
Your kind eyes...your loving smile...your gentle hands... Your big
heart saved me!!!!!
You saved me from the terror of the pound.
You have soothed away the memories of my old life.
You have taught me what it means to be loved.
I have seen you do the same for other dogs just like me.
I have heard you ask yourself in times of despair... Why do you do it?
When there is No more money...No more room....No more homes....
I see you open your heart a little bigger...stretch the money a little
Make just a little more room...to save one more like me.
I tell you this with all the gratitude and love that shines in my eyes.
It is the best way I know how...
Reminding you why you go on trying...
I AM THE REASON
The dogs before me are the reason
As are the ones who come after.
Our lives would've been wasted...Our love never given.
WE WOULD'VE DIED THAT DAY IF NOT FOR YOU!
