Now this one .. Dedicated to all of the wonderful people who truly care for animals.

Answer to Life is Harsh

Life is harsh out there.
Do you know? Do you care?
You picked me up in your arms
And took me in your car.
You took me to a place
That you called Home.
Life was harsh out there.
You knew. You cared.

You taught me how to love again.
You taught me how to play
You taught me I don稚 have
To live in fear.
Life was harsh out there.
You knew. You cared.

I値l never have to roam again.
I値l never have to run
I値l never have to hunt in vain
I値l never have to fight.
Life was harsh out there.
You knew. You cared.

I値l never have another litter
Who may die before they live.
I値l never freeze another winter long.
You picked me up into your arms.
You took me Home.
Life was harsh out there.
You knew. You cared.

Yeah well, I painted my bathroom today finally. Got thinking about it when I was doing that.
And besides..... the drive to get them fixed is 1 and 1/2 hours away. LOTS of time to think!! :D

That was lovely. You should put those on some pretty card stock and frame them and sell them.

I am in tears now, 14+, another beautiful poem :cry: :grouphug:

When I took Sweet Pea in with her litter, you could see such thanks in her eyes everytime I brought her food and sat with her and her kittens. She was nothing but bones when she arrived at my house.
