PET POEMS: “My foster dog”

“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 a regret,

for you are safe forever-

a new dog needs me now.
