A Dog Sits Waiting

A dog sit's waiting in the cold autumn sun
Too faithfull to leave, too frightened to run.
He's been there for days now with nothing to do,
But sit by the road, waiting for you.
He can't understand why you left him that day,
He thought you and he were stopping to play.
He's sure you'll come back, and thats why he stays.
How long will he suffer? How many more days?
His legs have grown weak his throat parched and dry.
He's sick now from hunger and falls with a sigh.
He lays down his head and closes his eyes.
I wish you could see how a waiting dog dies.
