Puppy Prayer


Now I lay me down to sleep,
the king size 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
Till 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 mornings 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!
