Hugging My Pillow
Author: Del


I hug my pillow every night
After a long and lonely day.
It seems to comfort me a little
While you're so far away.

Holding my pillow so close to me,
Pretending I'm holding you,
Makes me feel that I am not alone,
That you are with me too.

My pillow gives me security,
Like a baby's pacifier.
Makes me feel so much closer
To the one I so admire.

All night long I wonder.
How long will I have to pretend?
I want you here besides me, dear.
I want this war to end.

This is an astonishingly beautiful piece. Such depth and emotion -- Indeed powerful. Quite promising, and hope to see much more of yours. :)
