Peace from the Cold
The cold creeps in as night falls. She piles the covers on to keep her body warm. An ache for a peaceful night of sleep, it seems is all that she seeks.
With every toss and turn a prayer she says "Please send no more nightmares." Therefore the fire rages on inside her mind. In hopes that one day she will find that peaceful place where her body can finally rest and unwind.
No more sickness, no more worry, no more stress, but for now she piles the covers on, makes sure her family is safe and warm, gives them all her love, and says good-night, closes her eyes and holds on tight.
