“The ache for a home lives in all of us,

The safe place where we can go as we are,

And not be questioned.”


Maya Angelou



Music: You’ll Be In My Heart




It has been well over a month now

Since we trapped the homeless Hank

And, what a transformation has occurred

For helping him, so many are owed thanks


From the caring staff at our vet’s office

To the wonderful folks at a pet daycare

To the people who donated to his rehab

To those who shared his story, out there


When we trapped poor Hank, he was starving

And, he was deathly afraid, of we human beings

Today, he has gained back his weight, and his trust

To all who know him now, so much affection he brings


When he sees me today, he remembers that frigid day

In the back of my truck, when he had decided to trust me

He showers me with wet kisses and his tail wags non-stop

And, riding around town these days, truly fills him with glee


I was beginning to worry that he wouldn’t get a home

But a compassionate couple, has just adopted Hank

He’ll finally have the love and the attention he deserves

And to this wonderful man and woman, I give my thanks


There are so many ‘left behinds’ like Hank in our nation today

Abandoned, and abused, and neglected, all across our country

I sadly await the next telephone call, to help the next one in need

But every time that we find a home for one like Hank, I am happy



Everyone Who Helped Hank,

And, Of Course, Hank Himself,

Will Now, Always Be, In My Heart.
