A Poem to My Foster Dog

I am the bridge between what was and what can be.
I am the pathway to a new life.
I am made of mush, because my heart melted when I saw you.
Matted and sore, limping, depressed, lonely, unwanted, afraid to love.
For one little time you are mine.

I will feed you with my own hand.
I will love you with my whole heart.
I will make you whole.
I am made of steel.

Because when the time comes,
when you are well, and sleek,
when your eyes shine, and your tail wags with joy,
then comes the hard part…..

I will let you go — not without a tear,
but without a regret.
For you are safe forever.
A new dog needs me now.
