The Pillow (poem)

Updated on August 21, 2013

Was this the pillow which once held her head

Her gateway to dreams of another day

Her comfort in Joy and tears which she shed

Was this the friend which wouldn’t run away

-

What care did she spread which kept you so new

Her journey through time has kept you the same

Her heartfelt concerns held hopes which you drew

What did she impart which age couldn’t claim

-

Wish of her mornings as new light arrives

Her very first prayer was heard by your side

Her faith in tomorrow softness revives

Wish yet again some shadow replied

-

Was this the pillow of her mystery

Her dreams and whispers please share them with me

Music only

      I absolutely love this poem. What beautiful thoughts about the dreams and hopes of a person. I often wonder what my hubby dreams and ponders on his pillow at night. Voted way up!

      Good morning, Martin.

      Was so glad to see that you had a new write upon your page.

      Your adoring fans will gratefully enjoy the masterful skills of

      only one write from the MHatter, a day. It was you who set the quota at three, and promptly spoiled us.

      I read "The Pillow" much differently that the others who left

      comments. Genna was the only other to refer to its ending as

      'bittersweet'. "Wish yet again some shadow replied", puts an entirely different twist to this mysterious piece of work.

      Obscure lines leave us with aroused curiosities.

      You do love to leave us in a state of quandary, don't you, my friend.

      Great piece of work!

      DJ.

      Very touching Martin. I imagine a little girl in sweet slumber upon the pillow dreaming dreams of little girl wishes. Awesome, poem!
