A Cat's Prayer
Now I lay me down to sleep,
the king-size bed is soft and deep.
I sleep right in the centre 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
'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
and my claws I will unsheath.
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.
