A Dog's Night Prayer to God

Lord, thank you for this boy, Who fed me and gave me a nice home; Thank you for my good fate, You didn't allow me to stay With the street dogs and went on astray. I am asking you to bless me and my little master, To keep us both safe tonight, And far from mischievous chiefs and intruders, Pour upon us your Holy Spirit, That we may both have a good night sleep. As we both lay down on the cozy bed, Give us a wonderful dream, Dream........dream.......dream.. and dream, Of that biggest bone which in my life I haven't yet seen, And Lord, please save my loudest voice, For tomorrow's duty of barking and guarding.
Note: The idea was conceived from a beautiful picture of a boy with his dog praying before going to bed. The picture was taken from the internet. They are so cute! From this poem where I created a short movie in memory of my dog, Saver.

    WOW Leonora, the picture that inspired you has brought moving thoughts among my soul.. I remember when i was young, my mother showed me how to pray, at night time when I would slip into my bed to pray my dog would always sneak into my arms... He actually made my prayers very lovely.. I was a kid :-) i would pray with him in my arms.. thank you for the sweet and lovely picture image and the nice memory that surfaced just now.. always ~pd
