Don’t You Love Me Anymore a poem by Rhonda L Strickland

Don’t you love me
Why’d you lock me
Outside the door?

My bowl is empty
No water too.
Don’t you know that
I love you?

Where did you go?
I can’t find my home?
Where am I at?
I am alone.

I’m scared, confused
I’m so afraid.
Won’t someone help me,
Come to my aid?

I had a home,
Today I am unsure.
Was I bad,
or even worse,
Don’t you love me

A photo of Bogie, a friend’s pet who is a rescue. He was found on the street years ago and they brought him home to care for him & to find him a new family. Well, they fell in love with him and he is part of their family.
Bogie is a terrier mix and he is such a character. Friendly, sweet, loving and most of all appreciative. He knows that his mom & dad saved his life and he loves them so much. Still he has this expression every now and then where he seems to be worried. Mostly when they leave the house without him. Probably a memory of being abandoned, an insecurity that is part of him.

He is a good friend of Maggie May

I took care of Bogie & his sibs when his mom & dad had to go out of town. He & Maggie played and became good buddies…

    My neighbors adopted a stray dog from Spain, and received the following poem with it. Although not religious myself I still think it is adorable! Dog’s are such loyal and faithfull friends!

    When God had made the earth and sky,
    The flowers and the trees.
    He then made all the animals,
    The fish, the birds and bees.
    And when at last He’d finished,
    Not one was quite the same.
    He said, “I’ll walk this world of mine,
    And give each one a name.”
    And so He traveled far and wide
    And everywhere He went,
    A little creature followed Him
    Until its strength was spent.
    When all were named upon the earth
    And in the sky and sea,
    The little creature said, “Dear Lord,
    There’s not one left for me.”
    Kindly the Father said to him,
    “I’ve left you to the end.
    I’ve turned my own name back to front
    And called you dog, my friend.”

    Oh my sweet, sweet friend – this is so sad. What a wonderful message you send with the image and poem. It is also the story of failed relationships – which start out with so much excitement and hope, but end up not so different from this. Fabulous work Rhonda.

  • Thank you so much Anna… Dear Bogie has been tugging at my heart with this look of his and this just popped into my head. So glad you think it’s fabulous…
