Blanket of tears

I got a blanket of tears lying right on my bed
That's exactly where it lays where my tears were shed
I lay my head on my pillow and that's when I cry
My heart is in the cushion as my feelings begin to die
I got a blanket full of tears lying right on my bed
The salty water lying there, right by my head
I lay my blanket over me as my bed gets cold
I wrap my arms around my teddy bear; it lies tight in my hold
I got a blanket of tears lying right on my bed
My bed starves all day; it can't wait to be fed
I just stare at the ceiling with a lot on my mind
My thoughts play over and over, I can't press rewind
I got a blanket full of tears lying right on my bed
It's always going to stay there, nothing else is said
But my blanket is special; I'll never throw it away
I got a blanket of tears on my bed and that's where it will stay

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
