Someone Loves Me
by Richard Corsano

I was just a puppy tied outside,
I was lonely, I cried--
You opened the door to yell at me,
I went quiet.

Something rattled the trash can lid,
I cried for you, I hid--
You cursed me and then you beat me,
I went quiet.

I didn't make anymore noise,
I cried out in my heart's voice--
And Someone came to me,
Someone comforted me.

Now I'm all grown up and you're afraid I'll bite
I won't, I'll kiss your hand--
Because in the dark, cruel, lonely night,
Someone taught me to forgive.
