Written by: A Lover of All Animals
A dog sits waiting in the hot midday sun
Too faithful to leave
Too frightened to run.
He's been there for days with nothing to do
But sit by the road
Just waiting for you!
He can't understand why you left him that day,
He thought you were stopping to let him out to play.
He's sure you'll come back and that's why he stays
But how long can he suffer? How many more days?
His legs have grown weak,
His throat's parched and dry,
He's sick now from hunger
He falls with a sigh!
He lays down his head and he closes his eyes...
I wish you could see,
How a waiting dog dies.
