A Puppy’s 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 being can hardly move
I’ve trapped her legs, she’s 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
My nibbles on my human’s chin
She wakes up quickly
I have sharp teeth
I’m a puppy, don’t you see?
For the morning’s here
And it’s time to play
I always seem to get my way
So thank you Lord for giving me
This human person that I see
The one who hugs and holds me tight
And shares her bed with me at night
