You may have found me on the street or left at someone’s door;
You may have found me all alone on some old dirty floor.
You may have found me cold and wet from being in the rain
You may have found me old and sick from being in so much pain
You may have found me tired and panting as I could walk no more
You may have found me miles away and my paws were really sore
You may have found me hours away from being put to sleep
You may have found me grateful for the rescue, as in your arms I leaped
You may have found me excited as you visited me at the shelter
You may have found the walk you gave me peace from the helter skelter
You may have found me a little sad as I knew you had to leave
You may have found me knowing that in me you did believe
You may have found me happy when on the internet I would be placed
You may have found me surprised to see an actual picture of my face
You may have found me perky, as in my heart there was a song
You may have found me with foster parents and a feeling that I belonged
BUT TODAY YOU FIND ME THANKFUL BECAUSE I NO LONGER FEEL ALONE
FOR TODAY I WAS ADOPTED; NOW I HAVE A PLACE THAT I CALL “HOME”.
