That Was Easy

Such a simple answer
to the coldness
on that side of the bed.

I have a heated mattress pad.

This morning it occurred to me
to switch that side of it on,
and then slide my hand over there,
imagining the heat comes
from someone I deeply love,
someone who’s only
momentarily missing.

I did that.

I didn’t have to wait very long.

Now the coldness is gone.

    A temporary fix until your warm special someone arrives with a smile & a hug. Nice lil poem. Kinda sad.

      Sweet. Thx, Steve. Maybe a little sad, but it’s way better than what was going on over on that side of the bed before. 🙂 And it gets vastly better every day.

      Awwwww I like that you like it, Morine. It makes me feel all warm inside…way better than a heated mattress pad. 🙂

    I’m glad it’s getting better. I’m sure some lucky guy will be there someday.
