The Two Sides of You

hummingbird's joy shines,
in your golden lock


tiny, graceful feet,
longing to dance


hands that cooked gourmet meals,
strong and supportive


the scent of soap and incense,
cling to your clothes


a home filled with shining light,
surrounds you


spanish guitars and mantras,
fill your air


little pitter-patter feet,
trail you


new mothers seek,
your free information


stubbornness reigns,
moving forward


shell-shocked eyes
looking haunted


nights are tortured,
thoughts of the future


car gathers dust in the garage,
keys are hidden


gather up strength,
facing the day


the edge of tears fills your throat,
insides choking


walker sits by your side,
a loyal friend


ringing phone throughout the day,
always loving


gracious and giving,
you'll always be


laughter at little things,
sing in your heart


sudden sadness,
overwhelms you


sensitivity and kindness,
means the world


daily silence,
keeps you whole


positive outlook,
puppies nestling


flowers blooming,
inside and out


warm embraces remembering
the two sides of you



Dedicated to my very dear, beautiful friend, Karen Storek who shares with us her journey of ALS/PLS disease.
