Do you ever wonder what they do...
while you are out?
I wonder if they get anxious,
or if they simply sleep all day.
Maybe they settle down right where you said
so as to be ready and waiting when you return.
that even though they have a bed, your pillow is their favorite.
If they're lucky,
Funny how they always know...
when the time is near.
They know to be quiet and listen,
and to keep a watchful eye.
Because they know the familiar sounds of your arrival, they know you're home & they want to know all about your day!
