Lil Ellie

Lil Ellie

Written when I was trying to channel my emotions and inspired by JJ Heller’s song “Calvin and Hobbes”.

I needed a friend and I never knew how much you would comfort me
I needed a friend who listened and didn’t try to judge or give advice
I needed a friend who wouldn’t get angry even if I yelled
I needed a friend who really understood my pain

I never said it had to be a person
I never said you had to be real
My expectations didn’t matter to you
My tears wiped by your softness

Sometimes we all could use a friend like Ellie
Sometimes we get embarrassed because people have feelings too
Sometimes we hurt and we need to vent late in the night and early in the morning
Sometimes we grieve and cry so much, our pillow is soaked with pain and tears

I didn’t know a friend could be real and stuffed
I didn’t know a friend could be real to me and not real at the same time
I didn’t know a friend could be an object that brings me comfort
I didn’t know a friend would love for me to share my thoughts with other humans
