The Service Dog

Laying at my masters side,
I am ready for this night,
For as you lay there sleeping,
I keep you in my sight.

Your sheets are soaked with sweat,
The battle rage on,
I gently wake you with a nudge,
The nightmare now has gone.

Morning sun comes up again,
I am ready for this day,
I keep you safe so walk with me,
I’ll help you find your way.
