Caring to Share

Little scraps left behind

Were approached with fear

Nervous someone was near

Hunger won out

The shaking puppy starved

By months out in the cold

Decided to be bold

And eat the food

The soft-hearted young boy

Knew what he had to do

His pantry he’d go through

To feed this dog

Hoping he’d get closer

So daily he’d arrive

To keep that dog alive

Eyes filled with tears

This went on for a week

One day when he arrived

He got a big surprise

The pup came close

He held his breath a bit

Spread his coat on the ground

And gently he sat down

Near his new friend
