A Rescued Dog
By Anastasia Ormeron
Facebook posting 6/17/21

They always seemed to pass me by,
I never knew the reason why.
All my friends had found a home,
And only I remained alone.

But finally somebody came,
And spoke to me with gentle tone.
I hardly dared believe it true,
Into my human's arms I flew.
Our first embrace - my heart beat fast,
A family of my own at last!

And when tonight I rest my head,
In my new warm and cozy bed.
A prayer I'll send, high up above,
May all the shelter pups find love.
