Dog Prayer

Dog 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 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 sniffing on my human's chin.
She wakes up slowly, I begin to lick
And suddenly she's up real quick.


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 me and holds me tight
And sacrifices her bed at night.
