A Stray Dog Prayer

Dear God send me somebody who’ll care

Im tired of running Im sick with 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 leash and I ran away

To rummage in garbage and live as a stray

But now god Im tired and hungry and cold

Im so afraid that Ill never grow old

They’ve chased me with sticks and hit me with stones

While I run the streets just looking for bones

Im not really bad God please help me if you can

For I have become just a victim of “Man”

Im wormy dear God and ridden with fleas

All that I want is an owner to please

If you find one for me God, I’ll try yo be good

I won’t chew their shoes and Ill do as I should

I will love them, protect them and try to obey

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

I don’t think Ill make it too long on my own

Coz Im getting so weak and Im oh so alone

Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry

Cause I’m so afraid God that Im going to die

Ive 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
