A Heart Touching Poem by an Abandoned Pet: try not to cry

A Heart Touching Poem by an Abandoned Pet

Sometimes thing that may look a little can do wonders. This is something that was sent by a BBN community member who think it might make many people to think otherwise when they see an abandoned pet next time. If you like it, share it. A really important message is conveyed through this poem and even if this helps and saves one dog from being abandoned it would mean a lot.

“Woof!” I said as you started the car,

“Hooray!” I said, it’s my first time afar.

The scents we were passing were all new to me,

For it was my first introduction to this mystery.

As we got out of the car I embraced you with joy,

After all you remembered to bring my favorite toy!

You threw it once or twice, of which I retrieved,

But on the third it seemed you were ready to leave.

You threw it long and hard and I chased it like lightning,

But when I turned to bring it back I saw a sight quite frightening.


I gripped my toy hard as I tried to comprehend

What it was I did wrong to make our relationship end.

You walked back to your car as I sat there still loyal.

Why am I subservient and you so royal?

Your engine started, and you peeled out into the night,

You didn’t even care about my overwhelming fright.

As I sat in my pose determined you would come back,

The sun faded behind me while the surroundings turned black.

Day after day I stayed in that park,

Lying… waiting… too feeble to bark.


As I lay there dying thinking of you master,

I asked myself how I got into this horrifying disaster.

With my last breath of life, I whispered your name

Then I collapsed in a heap overrun by pain.

Why didn’t you love me master? Why didn’t you care?

Had I no significance, was I just a clump of hair?

I stayed there master and I waited for you

I guess taking care of me was just too much to do.

I’m gone now master, no more You-and-I

But what I can’t figure out is why you didn’t even say goodbye…
