I went out to rescue a dog that day...

to give him a really good life,

to take him away from the life he led,

and free him from struggle and strife.


I thought I would do him a favor,

and be a good person to him,

and go do my bit for the country,

I didn't' go out on a whim.


But what do you think really did happen?

The day that I did my good deed,

I discovered a love that I'd  dreamed  of

and fulfilled in myself a strong need.


I now have a dog that I care for,

I see things that I needed to see,

that lovely dog that I rescued,

really ended up rescuing me...
