I was sweating like crazy, I threw away the covers and got up to drink water to ease my parched throat! And then I lay down exhausted, Curled on my side of the bed And then the shivering started,
Trembling I put one blanket and then another blanket,
I was still shivering and my teeth were chattering,
He got up slowly and put the thick quilt on me, And whispered...are you better now ?
My husband of thirty years' when was the last time he had got up For me, I don't remember.
'I didn't know you were awake.' 'I am sorry I woke you up.' I said trying to hide the tremor in my voice... Which wouldn't let him know how moved I was by his gesture' Nonchalantly he said, 'the bed was shaking so I got up, wake me if you want anything else.' And then he turned his back and went to sleep.
And I clutched the quilt he had put' it was snugger than anything I had ever known.
