A Stray Dog's Prayer
Dear God, Please send me somebody who’ll care,
I’m tired of running, I’m sick with despair.
My body is aching, it’s so rack with pain,
And dear God, I pray as I run in the rain,
That someone will love me and give me a home,
A warm cozy bed and a big juicy bone!
My last owner tied me all day in the yard,
Sometimes with no water and God, that was hard.
So I chewed my leash, and I ran away,
To rummage in garbage and live as a stray.
But now God, I’m tired and hungry and cold,
And I’m so afraid that I’ll never grow old!
They’ve chased me with sticks, hit me with stones,
While I run the streets just looking for bones.
I’m not really bad God, please help if you can,
For I have become just a 'victim of man’
I’m wormy dear God and I’m ridden with fleas,
And all that I want is an owner to please!
If you find one for me God, I’ll try to be good,
I won’t chew their shoes and I’ll do as I should.
I’ll love them, protect them and try to obey,
When they tell me to sit, to lie down or to stay.
I don’t think I’ll make it too long on my own
Cause I’m getting so weak and I’m, Oh so alone!
Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry,
Cause I’m so afraid God, that I’m gonna die!
I’ve got so much love and devotion to give,
That I should be given a new chance to live!
So dear God please, please answer my prayer,
And send me somebody who will really care!
