‘Lay down’ he told me, ‘rest & recover’.
It was better than the most comfortable bed I’ve ever been in. I felt so safe, secure, and warm. Nothing hurt every contact of my skin to his felt nourished. I was healing.
‘Sleep my precious child’ he said and I did.
His thumb rested over me like a security blanket, keeping my body temperature perfect.
I awoke & my thoughts began to race…
‘No my child stop, this was just an accident. You are okay. Your body knows how to heal, calm your mind, sleep.’
And I did, better than ever before.
