He softly traced her fingers up along her spine,
she chuckled, as he placed soft kisses on her tattoo,
the one with three flying birds.
Instantly her memory dragged back to that day,
that awful day, she lost her family,
the three people she had, to a tragic fire.
Ever since, he was all she had. Tears rolled down her cheeks
She was again aware of his gentle touch,
wiping away the tears
his longing eyes gazing into her, and
he whispered, “It’s okay, baby. I’m right here with you”.
