The warmth of Friends

They reach out to tell me I’m loved
But it’s a love that leaves my bed cold
Their words are so kind
But their breath doesn’t caress my skin
Their eyes sparkle and shine
But I can’t see them in mornings first light
I reach out in the night for a touch
But find only a dream
I look to tomorrow and the struggles that wait
And wonder, will the warmth of today be enough to sustain me
