Just when I think I have everything under cover–
I need to turn into one of those mates who does hover!
Are his meds right – did the doctor see him?
My mate sleeps all the time – as if he had had gin!
He is always cold – do you cover him up?
Please make him comfy – if not happy – he yells like a pup!
Please take time to feed him – I know he is slow-
Don’t hurry his eating so that you can go.
Where is the hospital bed – its been a month in coming-
He needs this bed in order to keep him humming!
Then within a week of the new bed he has red spots-
Red spots on his body will blister & turn into pots.
Six weeks ago he was trying to walk in a walker-
Now he sleeps so much that he has become more of a talker.
A lift is now used for his body to raise-
No longer can caregivers move him – they do need our praise.
Other physical changes have hindered his state-
His eyes hardly see – and a high PSA is also his fate.
Please, Lord, dispell the demons that are haunting him-
He desperately needs your peace as his life is growing dim.
We see him daily – our daughter and me-
We put out fires as the needs be-
Lord , please give him calm & comfort without a doubt-
And please continue to lead us- as these fires we put out.
