“sighing and frightened” by Sasha on her bed

from a poem by Mary Oliver

Sighing and frightened she turns to me
She turns away from me
She tasks me with her care
She pulls the quilt tight around her chin
She asks to have the bottom tucked in
I do it
I’ll do almost anything she asks
As long as she says
Please
