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!!
