My furry burrito is in a siesta
softly toasted by the afternoon sun
as he dreams of outdoor adventures
by the window in my room.
My life is full of things to do,
promises made, people to call,
and bills to pay. What is his agenda?
Sleep. Wake. Eat. Explore.
And visit me, his reliable friend,
for scritches and strokes
but only to a point,
remembering that he is the one in charge,
and must behave as behooves a king.
Sleep, little one,
who means so much to me.
Do I appear in your dreams?
