Thank you Rosemary the poem was beautiful and I enjoyed reading it too....

A Caregiver's Heart

What's inside of a caregiver's heart?
Just for a moment, let's pick it apart.
I want to find out what makes it tick.
Why does one take care of the sick?

Here's the scalpel, let's take a look.
For this we'll need no anatomy book.
What's this I see? A stain I fear,
From many a tear over many a year.

This scar here is a fracture line,
One we hid when we said we're fine.
That deep mark there, it shows the pain,
From being accused of looking for gain.

There! Look there! See all that sorrow?
It's for the loved one who's lost tomorrow.
How can it function? How can it cope?
Surely by now it should lose all hope.

What is this glue that makes it strong?
Battered and bruised, it still goes on.
What keeps this heart from falling apart?
Love binds together A Caregiver's Heart.
They are all so lovely - thanks for sharing..

Lola thought I'd post this especially for you to let you know that your in my thoughts

If it helps to know
Someone cares...
I do.

If it helps to know
Someone is willing to share...
I will.

If it helps to know,
Someone will always be there...
I am.

(((Hugs))))
Take care, Maryann x
