A POEM TO MY FOSTER DOG
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, sore, limping, depressed, lonely
Unwanted, afraid to love.
For one little 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 a tear,
but without regret,
for you are safe forever
A new dog needs me now.
