It has taken us weeks to get to normal-
Whatever normal is – it sure isn’t formal!
Casual we are in work & deed-
It took a while to fulfill his need.
My mate makes his home now away from me-
How strange that is after 56 years where togetherness was key!
We visit daily but it is not the same-
As a matter of fact it is pretty lame.
I am very thankful that he is taken good care of-
His caregivers show him a lot of gracious love.
But there is a special someone missing from our home & heart-
Yes, after so many years it is difficult to be apart.
It is too quiet with no one for me to take care-
Together for so long – it doesn’t seem fair.
But it became overwhelming to take care of his needs-
We were both frustrated with my awkward deeds!
So we will adjust as best as we can-
Asking our Lord to supply us with a plan.
A plan that will see us to the end if our days-
If we will just listen to Him & follow His ways.
