"You have seen me at my worst,"
   you said,
but nothing I have seen diminishes
the prescious sweetness I feel
when I am with you.
Lying next to me, sick and in pain,
you reached your hand to touch
   my cheek,
and thanked me for being there,
but I too was thankful,
thankful that you wanted me
   to be there with you.
