A Boy and his Lion

I know a cute boy
who sleeps with a lion
they cuddle and snore
occasionally roar
tousle and turn
whimper and yearn
to snooze a little bit morethe boy leaves for
the day to work and play
the lion  home alone,
occasionally wanders away

Returning home
The boy is often heard to say
have you seen my lion?

under the bed?
lost in the covers?
behind the pillow?

the lion chuckling silently
finally roars “here I am!”

they cuddle and snore with an occasional
roar and happily sleep the
night away until the next day

and begin again
the cute boy and his lion
