A Christmas for Caregivers

27 Dec

Twas two days after Christmas and all through the house

Only one creature was stirring to torture her spouse

Her children are present but she doesn’t know

Isn’t that the way it’s always been though

This Christmas I have hope

This Christmas is special

The creature is slowly leaving

Soon I’ll be grieving

Its okay

Because the best gift I could give

Was learning to live

So Christmas is over and this was all I could think to write for the holiday.

No celebration just waking up like every other day,

in wait. I wait for them to wake, and then I serve, and then I wait until they slumber.

It’s barely an existence. That’s why I say I’m learning to live, because when I get free of this that is exactly what I am planning to do…


June 2014 this task will end.

Don’t be dismayed.

This is not a complaint.

I have been given a front row seat to the big screen of a life un-lived, a spirit leashed, and the inability to break the hardwiring.
