There aren’t many days that I really feel fine-
I’m walking on thin ice, balancing his health & mine!
Waiting on him sometimes with no sleep-
Leads to my asthma when I can’t breathe deep-
I need to plan my day carefully you see-
Can’t do all I want to or there won’t be any me!
My doctor said make a to do list , then cut it in half-
Make light of the day, chill, you can even laugh!
As I need to do more for Gary – I need to slow down-
And do as much as I can but not with a frown!
I need to stop & smell the roses so dear-
Let some things go until tomorrow without any fear!
Yes, the world does go ’round with or without me-
So indeed I do need to take care if I want to continue to be!
Chill is the word – take it one day at a time-
Make the best of the day & the world is mine!
