Underneath my pillow...



A dozen of lullabies
That helped me sleep
A dozen of caresses
That showed the love so deep

The fairy who promised
To take my tooth of milk
And in turn gave me
A warm rug of silk

When the dreams were tucked
Safely under my pillow
I looked out of the window
And wondered which star to follow

The books that lay
After being read
The faith that the remaining lessons
Would go straight into my head


The letters that told
The stories of the weak
My pillow held the secrets
Which were hard to speak


The dried stains of tears on it
Helped me mellow
An entire universe lies
Underneath my pillow….
