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.
