Prayer of a Stray Cat
Dear God please send me somebody who"ll care,
I'm tired of running, I'm sick with despair.
My body is aching. It's so racked with pain.
And dear God I pray as I run in the rain.
That someone will love me and give me a home,
And this scary world I will no longer roam.
My last owner left me and drove far away,
I remember this well, it was raining that day.
Yes they drove away as I scratched the pane,
But the house was all so empty and nobody came.
That very first night there was a hard frost,
I felt so very lonely and so completely lost.
There was no friendly voice calling my name,
To bring me in out of the cold and away from the pain.
So I left my home God and I ran away,
To rummage through garbage and live as a stray.
But now God I'm tired and hungry and cold,
And I'm so afraid that I'll never grow old.
They've chased me with sticks and hit me with stones,
While I run in the streets just looking for a home.
I'm not really bad God; please help me if you can,
For I have become just another "victim of man."
I'm wormy dear God and I'm ridden with fleas,
And all I want is an owner to please.
If you find one for me God, I'll try to be good,
And I won't scratch their furniture and I'll do as I should.
I'll love them, protect them and try to obey,
When they tell me to come, sit, or to stay!
I don't think I'll make it too long on my own,
Cause I'm getting so weak and I'm so alone.
Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry,
Cause I'm so afraid God that I'm going to die.
And I've got so much love and devotion to give,
That I should be given a new chance to live.
So dear God please, please answer my prayer'
And send me somebody who will really care.
