A Dog’s Bedtime Prayer
Now I lay me down to sleep,
The king-sized bed is soft and deep.
I sleep right in the center groove,
My human beings can hardly move.
I’ve trapped their legs, they’re tucked in tight,
And here is where I pass the night.
No one disturbs me or dares intrude,
Til morning comes and “I want food!”
I sneak up slowly to begin,
And nibble on my human’s chin.
For morning’s here, it’s time to play,
I always seem to get my way.
So thank you God, for giving me,
This human person that I see.
The one who hugs me and holds me tight,
And shares their bed with me at night.
