Waking from a feverish nightmare
I gasp for breath
Reaching for you beside me
only to find emptiness
My fingers brush the sheets
wishing to find your skin instead
Trying to calm my racing thoughts
I search for your words


My body relaxes
My mind clears
and closing my eyes
I find your smile
Waiting for me
In my dreams
