A Poem For All Rescue Moms

My mom says I'm a hero, but I'm not sure that's true.
My mommy is my champion. There's nothing she can't do.
 
She took me from a scary place and brought me to her home.
She offered me some comfort, more love than I had known.
 
She lay there on the floor with me and gently rubbed my ears.
She kissed my nose and sang to me to chase away my fears.
 
She cared for me and kept me warm and nursed me back to health.
She gave me everything I wanted, without thinking about herself.
 
Now I'm feeling better and running around the yard.
Who knew I'd end up happy after life had been so hard?
 
I do my best to snuggle her and kiss her when she's down.
She's done so much to help me that I hate to see her frown.
 
She says my smile and wagging tail brighten up her mood.
I only wish I could do more to show my gratitude.
 
She found me sad and hungry, and missing spots of fur.
She saved my life and rescued me. I owe my life to her.
 
My mom says I'm a hero, but I'm not sure that's true.
My mommy is my champion. There's nothing she can't do.
