Another Poem


It’s cold, dark and wet

I lie here filled with regret

In this alley, I am laying

Watching, thinking, praying

For an answer to come

My heart is beating like a drum


Will I be rescued soon?

Looking up I see the moon

I feel so alone and scared

If only I had been prepared

It came out of nowhere from behind

At first, I thought I was blind


Then I felt that piercing pain

The bullet hit me with no refrain

Now I lie here bleeding out

Too weak to even shout

I want to close my eyes

I’d better not; I’m not ready to die

I hear a noise not far from me


I look around, could it be?

The small dog came running over

I am happy to see you, Rover

This dog will keep me company

At least until someone rescues me

He looks at me and wags his tail


I reach to pet him, my pain he could tell

If I make it out of this, I say

You will have a home with me one day

I hear the sirens now not far away

Run buddy show them which way

They come and see me lying there


Blood all around me none to spare

By the look on their faces, I can tell

It must be bad; I just want to yell

I open my eyes and see

Rover sitting right next to me


The people in the room say he would not leave my side

He even went on the ambulance ride

He was good dog, my guardian angel

He eyes were big and brown, the sparkle like a bangle

I am glad you found me little one

Don’t know what would have happened had you not come


Rover and I were together for many years

Until the day he passed ended in tears

How I loved my little buddy

He was so cute and cuddly

See you soon I am not far behind

This world is not the same since you left my side


Goodbye Rover, until we meet again
