TENDER LOVING TOUCH

don't fear
she's dear

tight clutch
soft touch

wears white
polite

too sick
she's quick

your ache
she breaks

your ill
she feels

one pill
you still

preserve
your nerve

correct
inject

your shock
she blocks

you scared
she cares

through sleeps
she peeps

recharged
discharge

"thank you"
she coos
