She Knew She Was ... Home
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee
A little puppy left alone dying, discarded like trash
On the cold, wet ground as she lay listening to sounds around
Of children who ran, played, laughed... who used to play with her
Children who knew she was there... who pretended she wasn't there
The little puppy whimpered, cried for a kind hand to touch its head
No one came to hold, comfort the little puppy who was left to die
In the puppy's mind it remembered a person who always fed it
When she visited her, played with her Pups... she wished for that lady
Somehow, her little body got up on its four feet, walked the distance
To the lady's home just as... the woman came out on the porch
The lady cried out for her... she ran in the house to get something
For the puppy to eat... the puppy made it back to its dying spot
On that cold, wet ground... she didn't wait for the lady to come back
Soon, she heard voices coming close; she heard the woman's voice
Then, she was standing there calling her name... 'Camo, Camo'
The little puppy heard the sweet, kind voice that she loved
The voice of the woman who made her feel special, loved
She didn't know the woman had cried many tears for her
Saw her a short time ago; called on her cell phone to ask for her
She didn't know she was the woman's puppy now
The woman spoke quietly to the puppy, then, reached down for her
Took her bleeding, wet body into her arms
Began walking with difficulty toward her home
She heard the woman cry softly, say... 'Oh God, please give me the strength to get this puppy home
The woman had to put her down several times on the ground
She heard the woman say, 'I'll crawl with you, and get you home'
Her little body lay half on the ground, half in the woman's arms
The woman saw maggots fall from the puppy's body
Her heart squeezed in such pain... why, would people do this
To a little, precious, innocent person? Why?
Soon, days begin going by in a blur, the little puppy too sick to know
That she was going to live... prayers, good thoughts from her friends
Facebook Friends on her own special page... who fell in love with her
Prayers that heal, thoughts traveling to her filled with caring
The little puppy began to come alive once again... with hope to be loved, wanted
She watched through her little eyes that were so weak, sick
The woman who rescued her, do many things to make her feel better
Even to publicly ask for financial help to pay her medical bills
Something the woman could have never done before
But... for this little puppy ... she did, put her pride aside
As time went by, the little puppy's eyes began to clear
She began to really look, to feel that yes, she was special
Someone wanted her, cared for her... even if she made a sound
Somebody would run to her, to see if she was okay
Now... she knew she was the woman's puppy... she knew she was home
