A Lost Boy And His Dog

Poem By Joseph T. Renaldi

I'm a little boy isolated from everyone,
And my family and friends need to see
That I'm missing from the neighborhood scene.
Perhaps they have forgotten all about me.

If I remain lost and here alone,
Eventually I will become weak and frail,
But my faithful collie dog has followed me,
A welcomed companion on this dusty trail.

Yet - he can't lead me home, for he
Was taught to remain with his master,
So I'm constantly rubbing my teary eyes,
And just as lost now as ever and facing disaster.
What will become of me?

Collies are some of the smartest dogs. Even if trained to stay with the master, the collie will realize when the master is in trouble and will help him.
A faithful dog is better than many people. Thanks, Joseph
Yes. A very poignant poem. The lost boy and his friend the collie dog which can't show him his way home. Nice write.
How poignant. One longs to reassure the lost boy and his collie dog. This is a small masterpiece, Joseph. Warm regards, Sandra
