A Stray Dogs Prayer

28 Jul

Dear God please send me somebody who will care!

Im tired of running, Im sick with despair.

My body is aching, it’s so racked with pain

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 God 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 there shoes and I’ll do as I should.

I will love them, protect them and try to obey

When they tell me to sit, lie down or to stay.

I don’t think I’ll make it to 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 going to 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

Send me somebody who will really care.

That is dear God, if you’re really there.
