I pad down the hallway
crack open your door
plod gently inside
to catch your soft snore.
Your breathing is steady,
your slumbers are sweet,
I’ll stand guard ‘gainst the monsters
your sweet dreams to keep
from being disturbed, or night waking
to cause, you’re safe in your dreamland
so I rest my tired paws.
A sweet little poem about how faithfully our pets guard us!
