Warmth is

            A whispered “I love you” against

                        Lips trembling with passion

Warmth is

            A summer evening on the front porch

                        Children playing nearby

Warmth is

            A look traded, unspoken communication

                        Instantly understood

Warmth is

            Feet mingling under a shared blanket

                        Body heat shared

Warmth is

            Reading quietly in the same room

                        Soft glances exchanged

Warmth is

            The connection between two people
