The Day You Came Into My Life
The day you came into my life,
it was late winter of ‘98.
You were meant to be with me
I know for sure it was fate.
I wanted a pup and to save a life
So off to the shelter I went.
There were many to choose from that day
But I believe that you were Heaven sent.
There were big dogs, small dogs,
And many in between.
All waiting to find a furever home.
All making sure that they were seen.
Sad eyes that looked up at me,
Tails that moved from side to side.
Hoping this would be the day
That they would go for a car ride.
When I spotted you behind the fence,
You had matted and tangled fur.
No question that you were the one
Of this I was 100% sure.
I could not take you home that day
Three days was how long I had to wait.
When I returned to adopt you -
I thought I was too late.
Another man was there as well
He wanted you for his mother’s pet.
This couldn’t be happening
I suddenly felt very sad and upset.
Just when I thought I couldn’t have you
The man told me I could be the one
If I promised to give you a good home
And of course love you a ton.
To this I wholeheartedly agreed
It was surely meant to be!
You left the shelter that winter morning
Becoming a part of our family.
Sugar, all of these years
You’ve given us so much love
Fate stepped in to bring you to us
You were sent from Heaven above.
Adopting a pet is wonderful
It’s the best thing you can do
You’ll be saving a life, and
Finding the right dog just for you.
Please love and help a dog
To find a better way....
Your own life will be much richer
And you’ll look forward to each new day. ♥
I love the poem, it's very touching!
