Soft blanket for cuddling
With a fuzzy inside.
Stuffed animals to protect from the cold wall.
A squishy pillow to rest my head.
A nice soft mattress to bring it all together.
I grew up on this mattress.
It moved up and down.
From top bunk to regular bed
And back and over again.
Now it’s stuck as a regular bed.
I took it from my parents,
And removed it from its fellows.
Never again will it stack up high.
Over the years,
My bed has changed.
New blankets, new sheets,
And new stuffed animals.
But it has always been my bed.
