The Prayer of a Stray

PRAYER OF A STRAY

Dear GOD please send me somebody who’ll care!

I’m tired of running, I’m sick of despair.

My body is aching, it’s so racked 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 lease 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 I’ll never grow old.

They’ve chased me with sticks and hit me with stones
While I run the streets 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
And I won’t chew their shoes, but 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 stay!

I don’t think I’ll make it too long on my own,
Cause I’m getting so weak and I’m so all alone.

Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry,
Cause I’m getting so weak and I’m so all alone.

Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry
Cause I’m so afraid God, that I’m gonna die!

And 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 someone who will really care….
That is, dear GOD, if your really there!
