The sadness
The blackness
The feeling of hurt.

The good times
The bad times
All broken apart.

The hopless
The lonely
Still etched in my heart.

The wishing
The praying
The sun will still set.

The happy
The free
In sheltering arms.
Finally in sheltering arms.
I am finally in sheltering arms.

The pieces altogether.

The author's comments:
What inspired me to write this is my dog. We got him from a shelter and we believe he was abused. When I look deeply into his hurting eyes I feel like there's more then just a dog. I wanted to express the way I felt about him. He was scared when we first received him. I hope that whoever reads this understands the pain that some animals must go through. To feel sorry and understanding. To feel that happiness can't come from your head, it comes from your heart.
