If Dogs Could Talk

If Dogs Could Talk

If dogs could talk what would they say?
Maybe, hey you come let's play
Go grab the ball and the frisbee
Lets play a game just you and me.

Maybe they'd say don't leave me out here
I want to be with you, close and near
I don't want to be tied to this chain
Will you bring me inside out of the rain?

What would a dog say on being a stray
Maybe hey you I've lost my way
I'm hungry and thirsty and lonely too
Hey maybe I can come home with you?

The dog in a shelter must have alot to say
What did I do to end up this way
Can you take me home and give me a name
I once had a family, this just isn't the same

I don't want to fight, a dog once said
All I want is a nice soft bed
It hurts to fight and be ripped apart
Why don't we make a brand new start

A major discussion goes on everyday
Why oh why are we stuck in this cage
Will you leave us go and let us be free
This isn't right, why can't you see

So if dogs could talk what would they say
They'd say I love you and with me you could play
We'll go for walks and relax in the sun
Now wouldn't all that be such fun

But they can't talk, but look in their eyes
Those eyes say more than one can surmise
They're devoted and loyal and oh so true
All they want is to be with you.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
