Before I get started, I’m going to remind you that I’ve updated the Song of the Week page! Check it out.. it’s a good one!
I can’t even begin to keep track of all the abilities and things I lack.. but I try hard.
I can’t walk, can barely stand, and more than once need your hand.. but I try hard.
Cooking, cleaning and holding a job, it’s my fault I live like a slob.. but I try hard.
Sometimes I cry and beg, plead, and scream and you remind me we’re a team… I try hard.
For days I can’t get out of bed and the pain is throbbing in my head.. but I try hard.
I can’t remember thoughts or words and this is something that can’t be cured… but I try hard.
You tell me something but I can’t recall, and you hold me up when I trip and fall… I try hard.
If you’re scared or worried about me you hold it back and don’t let me see.. you try hard.
You live each day to make sure I’m safe, and it’s hard on you to give me space.. you try hard.
You fetch my pills and bring me food to make me smile and help my mood… you try hard.
One day we’ll just be able to live, but until then my love I’ll give.. we try hard.
An open letter to my loving husband and friend.
