She left her babies all alone,
to search for food, her fate unknown.
She walked for miles on tired feet,
for even a morsel of food to eat.
Roaring engine, screeching tires,
headlights burning like wildfires,
to her a wild fearsome beast.
It attacked; her heartbeats ceased.
The babies alone waited for her,
little helpless balls of fur.
God loves creatures, great and small;
surely His angels will heed their call.
