I came across a poem again. I once wrote it for a friend who became a quadriplegic, and there is a reason that it has surfaced again. Mom’s life is changing so much. It is filled with loss and gain, acceptance and letting go, finding new meanings and reasons to go on. A life once familiar is no more and adjustments are needed to embrace the unknown. I’ve said it many times, but as time ticks away, my gratitude for being here to help her with this mission is growing to new heights. I know that her days would be much darker without me.
I believe the poem is relevant to what is going on and I will share it once more. As it becomes multi dimensional, and perhaps is fitting for many others, I will dedicate it to Mom and to everybody that needs help, encouragement and love. May you never forget to dream and feel loved.
“An Angel spreads it’s Wings”
An Angel spreads it’s Wings over you by day and night,
an Angel quietly sings when you wonder what life brings.
When everything is gray and makes no sense,
he brings you strengths, comes to your defense.
He takes your pain and lifts your sorrow,
you’ll see it gets better, just wait till tomorrow.
With patience you will face each day,
finding new means in every way.
You find hope and courage, the sun begins to shine,
each day will bring new progress and everything is fine.
It’s a new beginning but never the end,
your life goes on, an Angel was sent.
An Angel spreads it’s Wings to help through the night,
to conquer every mountain, to join you in the fight.
