Ode to my Bed

Comfy sheets and blankets galore
underneath the window sill,
I cannot await you furthermore
I just left you and still – I crave for you to hold me,
to feel your warm embrace,
I miss the way we used to be,
your pillows around my face.
I find it rather hard, it’s tough
To make it through the day,
I feel I do not see you enough,
so sorry I can never stay.
It’s a shame I have to go to class
and leave you unattended,
It is only when I return at last,
That my heart is finally mended.
So in a lecture, here I sit,
with thoughts of you, through
every passing minute,
I cannot help but appeal to,
the promise you offer me,
falling into the sweetest dreams,
we can be together finally.
