Happy Tails of the Week

A Foster Poem

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,
Tired and broken, depressed,
Lonely, unwanted, afraid to love.
For a 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 loved,
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
And a new dog needs me now.
