A Poem for a Rescue Dog


A Poem for a Rescue Dog

This is a poem I wrote about my rescue dog, Darcy. I’m sure it applies to many, many dogs out there

Poem For A Rescue Dog

A Poem For A Rescue Dog

A year has passed since we met our little man

A feisty, mini dachshund

with a coat of black and tan

We called him Mr. Darcy

because he didn’t know his name

and told him that from now on

life would never be the same

We peeled away the layers

and slowly it was clear

All he ever wanted was

a family to hold dear

His little heart was bursting

with love for someone who

could give him back some happiness

and start his life anew

To those who didn’t want him

To those who didn’t care

You had to look into his soul

to see the love that’s there

The journey isn’t easy

There are hurdles in the way

But I would never change him,

Just love him more each day.
