The Ordinary

My bed is ordinary yet so very special to me
a high bed that I can sit on without bending 
roll in and out off a big advantage as I age
I have a memory mattress that is comfortable

Sinking into to it my nights pass with ease
waking up refreshed, ready to take on the day
nights that are spent in many pleasant dreams
yes my bed may be ordinary but a treasure to me

    Nice description of an ordinary. It is amazing how important so many things are, yet, they don't ever make the news or the red carpet.

    I can relate, just got home from Vegas and one of the best parts was sleeping in my own bed last night.
