~ Love the Best
Lately I have
had to endure my own pain
For me this has not happened, for many a day
But you have taken time, from your own hurt
To show me, that I still do have your heart.
Just for you to make sure that I am doing fine
To me this is like drinking a very fine wine
For your care helps me bear my lack of comfort
Filling the time with some laughter of sorts.
I am gradually feeling better, as time passes by
Maybe in a few days, at last I will be fine
Though it may take days, weeks, or even months
What does keep the healing going, is your gentle love.
Please, if I do not seem attentive enough
It may be at the time, I am feeling rough
Remember though, I worry about how you feel
Even if in my actions this may not seem real.
As your love is medicine, for all that ails me
I hope mine for you, sets all your pain free
When I am feeling better and strong once again
Then in my love and friendship, you can depend.
