I wish for your arms around me,
instead of this sweater and blanket.
But you’re already asleep,
so this is just as far as I can get.
Never mind, love.
For me, your presence is already enough.
Feel your hand reach out to mine,
until our finger intertwine.
Soon you’ll know
once I’ve captured this precious moment.
Suddenly, this fever no longer feels like a torment,
for I have you here to love me so.
Thanks for being here.
I’m so blessed.
You’ve put my mind at a peaceful rest.
