Forever Home …
What would you give to a homeless dog?
A little dog who in life had a bad start,
Give to him all the love and care he needs,
Give him a forever home in your heart.
What would you give to an abused child?
A child too afraid to speak and reach out,
Give that child some hope and fast help,
Find all the legal help you can and shout.
What would you give one who loves you?
One whose love is deep and always sincere,
Even if your love is not the same in return,
Just your kindness and friendship is so dear.
What would you give an elderly person?
One who is lonely and has no family,
And so needs just a little attention,
A friendly visit would be received happily.
What would you give a tired single Dad?
Or a single Mom who needs some relief,
Babysitting or shopping would be great,
In friendship it gives them belief.
What would you give a world in distress?
Give to the victims of terror and disaster,
A helping hand or at least some prayer,
Help them get back on their feet faster.
What would you give your wounded warriors?
Who put themselves in harm’s way for you,
Or those of the ultimate sacrifice,
A forever home in your heart is true.
What would you give ……
