He likes to sleep in, his slumber is deep-
He awakens early, then goes back to sleep.
Sometimes he says he is very cold-
Then I cover him up & he is back in the fold.
Sometimes, at noon, he will get up with a moan-
Sleepy eyed & foggy – into the kitchen he will roam.
Once he eats breakfast, pills taken, he acts like a guest-
He heads for his favorite chair in which he feels blessed!
Often times he will wait to get dressed much later-
Later to him is 2pm, yes, to him I do cater!
If I wake him & hurry him to get up & around-
He gets angry & argues – not worth the hound!!
So our days are getting shorter, our nights getting long-
But all is worth it if he gets up like a happy song!!
