Rest your silken head across my knee,
Dream doggy dreams of things to be,
See what humans will never see,
Sleep well, my pretty.
All being well the bugs won’t bite
As you drift gently into the night,
Be assured that you’ll be alright
Nothing will get close to harm you.
Snuffle quietly as you sleep,
Rhythmic breathing, slow and deep,
My heart’s so full, I want to weep,
These emotions you raise within me.
You may just be a dog, but I love you dear,
You make me feel safe just by being near,
Who cares most for who is not quite clear
But my world is complete with you in it.
Pets fill our hearts unconditionally,
They give us reasons to live happily,
Without them, our lives would be so empty,
Sweet Maggie, my Baby, I’m here.
