Life Goes On…

This will be more a ramble than a rant
my thoughts are so jumbled
like the path that I follow.
To many pressures of life to make sense
why does one get sick
why does another leave.
I try to be a support for each one I care for
yet how can I support
when it is based on a lie.
After sharing your life with a sister so vibrant
how can you watch them wither
knowing the time is near at hand.
When you’ve given all of yourself to another
how do you get over that loss
how can you say goodbye to unhearing ears.
Is it possible to sit in a room knowing the pleasures
they were shared there
but were they ever mine.
What makes us think we know the best for a friend
one you felt their heart
yet did they ever care.
Oh the thoughts that fill an old mans mind
too many to count
make the voices stop.

    I can’t imagine we ever know – all we can do is love. While it might not ever seem sufficient, it always is! Well done…….. – Love, Bobbie

    I certainly feel the heartbreak in this one. But do understand those feelings too well; it is so hard to watch a loved one leave us behind. Hugs my dear friend
