Hope

He lay there all forlorn
Wishing someone would give him a home

His legs might be bent but he can still walk
Can be very verbal when we talk

He just lies here, has no one to love him
Eyes are so sad, heartache within

No one to hold him to say its ok
No one to watch him when he tries to play

There must be someone whose heart i melt
He thinks as he lays there with hope not felt

Whats this a little  guy in a wheelchair
Went to pass by, but stopped to stare

Mam he cries he is just like me
Cant walk so good from what I can see

Can he come home with us  he can ride on my lap
When his legs are tired, he's a bright little chap

So now there is hope and love in these eyes
I have a new playmate and a home thats a surprise

I am the happiest boxer pup in town
Have a big grin where once was a frown.

    A very nice poem that obviously has another underneath meaning that you were talking about, or at least it would seem so. Nice take on hope, good work again.

    What a touching poem. Boxers are quite adorable in their own right. This hit hard for me, a dog lover. =)
