A Greyhound's Eyes.

I am one of the lucky ones
I have found my place
Love and kindness all surround me
A smiling happy face.

I mourn still though
Despite this fact
Of the other horrid acts
My brothers and sisters have to suffer
No toys and no playing
No bedding and covers.

In my dreams I chase them
I want them all to see
ďCome with me Iíve found a placeĒ
ďMy friends come back with meĒ

But they never follow
They run into the light
For they never ever learn
It is a hopeless plight

So in my sleep I cry for them
In my sleep I try
To catch them up and bring them home
They shouldnít have to die

My friends I wonít forget you
Like the others would
My friends I wonít forget you
And no-one ever should

I will live a happy life
That I canít deny
A happy home
With love and bones
Iím glad I did not die

Iíll make sure youíre remembered
Iíll carry your spirit with me
In my face and soulful eyes
Itís your pain they will see
