He missed me...

A total of 18 days without him.
(a lengthy hospital stay will do that to you)
My heart ached for him, his for mine.
I haven't slept much.
Neither has he.
He woke up crying last night.
He wouldn't let me leave his side.
I unhooked him from everything,
and carried him to my bed...
Both of us slept,
and somehow everything seemed to be better.
