Inch by inch he is disappearing from me-
Sometimes I wish I didn’t have sight to see.
The one who was so strong is now so vulnerable-
Vulnerable to the evil disease that’s left him so humble.
Now my marathon runner is losing his balance-
This disease takes its tole & leaves no counterbalance.
His words come slowly & he can’t voice his thought-
He’s frustrated & giving up these words for which he fought.
Slumped in his chair he looks all tuckered out-
Such a struggle has he had – full of much doubt.
His anger comes often, unexpected & fierce-
I don’t blame him, my heart he does pierce.
He is on a roller coaster of feelings & fear-
This up & down life deteriorates year after year.
I hold his hand, I don’t want to let go-
My fears won’t stop coming – I love him so.
He always did the fixing in our lives thru the years-
Now I can’t fix him in his time of fears.
Please, Lord, hold him in the palm of your hand-
I can no longer please him from this life which he is band.
I give him to You & Your plan for his life-
Please, Lord help him, protect him from all of this strife.
