Jose's Plea

A short poem about a dog called Jose and her plea.

Jose's Plea

For twelve good years I had a home I could call my own
When suddenly my master died, and I was left alone.
The powers that be removed me, to a place far away
A cage within a dogs home was where I had to stay.

My basic needs were catered for, but I felt alone
Cold, confused and frightened, wondered what I'd done wrong.
Seven days, like seven years, passed eventually
Then dear friends took me to the Sanctuary.

I've been here for a year now and people come to see
But like the little blind child, they pass and don't choose me.
For thirteen years, I've given much and still have much to give
I like it here, but dream at night of somewhere else to live.

A kind caring master, a fireside all my own
Where I could rest, dream pleasant dreams and maybe gnaw a bone.
That's what I pray at the end of the day when all the work is done
Surely out there someone could make me their number one?

Don't write me off because I'm old and think I am done
I've still got all my senses, am lively and like fun.
Looking back is happy; forward full of fears
Please let me know I'm wanted in my final years.
