My Lost Pet

My little dog escaped her safe confines
And thoughtlessly dashed out to have some fun.
She was the happiest of little dogs
and didn't think it wrong to have a run.

I tried so hard to call her back to safety
But she was unaware of danger there.
A car was just a toy to run in front of,
And she was always one to take a dare.

The driver couldn't stop her car in time
And my dear pet was lying in the street.
I blame myself for having been so careless.
I hadn't taught her to come at my entreat.

I do so miss my happy little Muffin,
Who never met a stranger or a foe.
I hope she's happy in her doggy heaven,
And running free as hard as she can go.
