Games are games,
we get tired
when we play
as hard as we can.
Then we need rest.
Fur keeps you warm,
so warm
that when
good rest comes,
you may need
a friend
to watch over you,
keeping you safe
as you sleep.

The dog slept
by my feet,
sometimes pushing
for just
a little more room.
Funny how much space
such a small dog requires.
And sometimes,
I wonder,
especially now
that he’s gone,
who kept who safe,
as we slept.
