Holding Hands

I woke shortly after midnight.
Eilidh was grumbling,
Uncomfortable in her bed.
I needed to go to her

My hand was in David's,
Hidden under the pillows.
For a moment I was invincible -
But I had to let go.

I went through to her,
Turning her body
As she slumbered on
And kissed her sweet face.

Then back to bed:
To warmth and security,
To my husband
Who gives me strength...

I'm glad there is someone there for you like you are for Eilidh :)
