Ginger and Lemon Drink

I'm sipping my nightly drink
A cup of warm ginger and lemon made by my son
Blend of fresh ginger slices, lemon and spoon of wild honey in warm water
Flavored just right for my taste
Not too sour nor too sweet

I had a busy day today
Did chores and attended to my husband's needs
He is still weak physically
I feel tired and spent

A cup of this ginger and lemon drink is just what I need
To recharge my low energy
It is soothing for my throat and helps
In relieving my cough

Every night I take a cup of this drink before I go to sleep
A sort of nightcap
My son knows this routine
And he serves me each night before I go to bed
A task he enjoys doing for me
