I hold you tight, as I am reluctant to let you go.
I get up reluctantly, so that I can start my day.
I have you on my mind throughout the day.
I long to dress you in fancy beddings made from high-quality fabrics.
I must make do with modestly-priced sheets from IKEA.
I seek solace with you on rainy days, on gloomy days, on exhausting days.
I look forward to your warmth at the end of the day.
I know that with life full of ups and downs, I can always count on you, my bed, to be consistent in the face of uncertainties.
