Rescue by Stacey Kuhns

They come to us broken, scared, and alone
Needing love
The stability of a home

Some so tiny, fragile, and sweet
Some who spent their lives on the street

Some whose owners have passed away
Leaving no option, no place to stay

Every life special, every one unique
Seeing deep inside
For the love that they seek

It takes someone special to answer this call
For as many as we save
There are others who fall

Little lives gone in the blink of an eye
Tearing our heartstrings
Making us cry

But the someone who sees past
The scruffy soul
There is an unconditional love
That can make you feel whole

Healing the broken, the scared, and the weak
Making them realize it is love that they seek

The ones who have never felt kisses or hugs
Are the ones who become the best love bugs

They respond to a calm voice and gentle touch
And in return they give us so much

It is all worth it when they get a new start
And the previously unwanted
Become the key to your heart

Our happiness soars when a forever home is found
The strength of that bond cannot be unbound

It is not easy to do what we do
It is a trial
But saving just one life makes it all well worthwhile
