I found my pillow upside down
And didn’t know how to sleep that night.
So I took a sleepy pill
It was big, and bright, and blue.
It made me drowsy but I never slept
I simply watched my pillow come to life
And tell me of how I always wept
Every night in my sleep.
Unaware of my own pain
Unaware of my own strife
It didn’t make me happy to hear him say these things
So I buried my head into his face
And wept and wept and wept
until I could no longer hear his breath

And that was the first night I soundly slept.
