I Am Sick Without You…

so sickI am sick

Without you


To take care

Of me.

I languish

All alone

On the couch,

Choking down


While I

Watch TV.

I miss

The way

You’d play

With my hair,

Rub my tummy,

And lecture me

On how mad

You’ll be

If I don’t

Call out

From work

In the morning.

Being sick

Is no fun

Without you

Looking down

At me

With concern

And love

In those

Big, brown eyes.

I know

I’m a

Big baby

When I’m


The weather,

But you


Put up

With my


And that

Is just


Of the


Reasons why

I love you.

I know,

I know…

I will hydrate

And relax.

I’m wearing

The Magic Robe

You gave me,

And it’s almost

Like you’re

Here with me.

I am sick

Without you.

I also

Don’t feel well…

    hope all your parts, inside and out, feel better soon )

  3. Sounds like neither of us had good “weekends”. So sorry you were sick and mostly sorry that this special person was not able to be with you. 😦 Feel better soon!
