The marital bed is a loving place,
but problems can arise from the available space.
The size of the bed can be the trouble,
when the size of your bed is only a double.
When we first chose it we felt so wise,
the bed we bought was just the right size.
In winter we can keep each other warm with a cuddle,
but in the summer heat you don't want to huddle.
This is my side right up to this point,
then the rest is yours up to that joint.
We fall asleep and the night it goes on,
then we turn over and my space is gone.
You climb back into bed from off the floor,
begging for space just a little bit more.
A grunt of discontent comes from the other side,
Your problem is you need a bed that is ten foot wide.
At last sleep comes and then you start to shiver,
the partner turns over and the covers go with her.
Then within the partnership patience starts to fray,
But then dawn breaks and the start of a brand new day.
