You settle in for the night,

And I lean in to kiss you,

You offer your cheek.

“I don’t want you to catch my cold”.

I gingerly give you a peck, but inside I am thinking.

A cold?

I’ve gone to work when I really should not have.

I’ve stayed awake nights doing mountains of laundry.

Dishes, and making the kids lunches…..

And a cold? A cold seems like nothing to surmount.

Well worth the price of one of your kisses.

Well worth the price.
