I am the bridge between what was and what can be. I am the pathway to a new life!
I am made of mush. Because my heart melted when I saw you;
matted and sore, limping, lonely, unwanted and afraid to love.
For one moment in time you are mine. I will feed you with my own hand.
I will love you with my whole heart. I will make you whole.
I am made of steel. Because when the time comes,
when you are well, and sleek, when your eyes shine,
and your tail wags with joy, then comes the hard part… I will let you go –
Not without tears, but without a regret. For you are safe forever –
A new dog needs me now!
