From Day One

100 words about the superpowers of a baby blanket

I soak up the tears so your pillow won’t get wet. Every night you say you won’t fall asleep; you always do. Because I’m here to restore some of the comfort the muffled voices drifting up from downstairs have taken from you.

I don’t understand the words. I don’t need to. I know they make you scared and my job is to make you feel safe and secure. The louder they shout, the more you need me.

You rescued me when they wanted to throw me out. I may look old and threadbare, but you know what I’m capable of.

    1. Oh, yes, a dog or cat would be a good one – that would give a whole new meaning to the ‘throwing me out’ line… Thanks for letting me know your reading; it’s fascinating to see all the different interpretations!
