The Left Behind And The Lost

7 Mar

Weep for the ones that can’t understand,
for the left behind and the lost,
defenseless, in fear of savage man
whose actions exact such a terrible cost.
Left as their masters flee to survive,
condemned to forage and find their way,
these beautiful creatures from whom we derive
such joy and love in a different day.

Pray for the helpless who hide in the night,
who die as we ravage the suffering earth.
They cannot survive this terrible blight.
Please, God, may their sorrowful deaths give them birth
into realms of contentment and peace once more,
to live without the evils of war,
my faithful yellow Labrador,
afraid in the dim light of smoke shadowed stars.
