Happy Ending

                                                        Happy Ending

                                              On a quiet tree lined street
                                              A 3 year old living in squalor.

                                        Never outside ,no one knew he was there.
                                      Mother left  grandmother to see to his care.
                                     One old and sick dog left outdoors , saved him
                                               because one person cared. 
                                    No one saw or heard the  19 live  and dead animals
                                                 at the end ,found inside.
                                            Grandmother taken to hospital.
                                       Child now thriving , happy in foster care.

                                                      True story 
                                              Anne Rutherford 11/19/14.

    I am glad this story ends well, so many children are being abused in society, I pray they all get this type of ending, thank you for sharing and so sorry to hear about the loss of your husband, it must have been heart wrenching to watch him die, I am sure he is an angel by your side now, guiding your every move, thank you for stopping by my poetry, it was much appreciated xxx

    It brings tears to the eyes dear, Anne. Thank you for sharing. Fortunately there are good people everywhere that do God's work but no one seems to care to listen for people care only for the dramatic and cruel! God bless you my, dear Anne!
