She opens the door
Clumsy steps towards the bed
Adjusting and trying to feel right after a day of movement. She needs time to be still again.
A deep breath.
A shallow sigh.
The longing sets in.
The sweet memories.
Entering and feeling tired
Together.
Slowly feeling better
Together.

He would gently sit next to her worn plush lamb inviting her to a soft blanket.
She remembers the smoothness
of his skin, and the warmth of his
touch.
Rose-colored lips and beaming eyes.
He was forever precious to her.
She would climb in after shuffling though the creaky house setting her bag down, and bringing water to
the room.
He waited, and an inviting smile crossed his face as climbed in beside him.
The sound of his breath and the beat of his heart consoled her.
A deep sigh.
She pressed her face to his cotton shirt.
It smelled like a floral blend of lavender.
His long arm stretched underneath her neck, and she lay peacefully enveloped in his warmth.
She moved closer and up until her face was an inch from his.
She could see his bright eyes beginning to flutter. His grin relaxed. Her fingers pushed his soft curls
away from his face and their eyes were looking though each other like opposite sides of a beautiful
portal.
She pressed her lips to his and pulled him into her chest. He wrapped around her body and she felt his
embrace and head gently laying into her arms. She brought him closer into her heart. He could hear it
beating.
Now looking across from the bed,
she sees her lamb slumped over
next to an empty spot.

She curls up into the covers
and brings her lamb into her chest.
She remembers his warmth like a flame
lighting her up inside.
She holds on to her feeling of love,
and closes eyes to preserve her energy.
The flame and light pushing her persevere.
A mellow buzz wakes her, and a familiar notification lights up the top of her screen.
His spirit brings her happiness and hope.
He is forever precious to her like a
light that shines forever.
