Heal

The sickness is slowly picking up

Every now and then she stops

Catches her breath

And I see she’s aching but I can’t help her

She smiles

She tries

To be strong, to appear strong

But the sickness is slowly creeping

Sickness

Sometimes physical, sometimes emotional
Other times mental

What’s certain is though is that it is rampant
Be the weather cold, dry, hot, snowing….
Sickness is everywhere

Your kind of sickness is physical
Mine is emotional
Others…..well others is a mixture but mainly mental

They put others down
They find content, or so they think, when others are in pain
Or undergoing hardship

Society has a sickness that is eating it up slowly
And most people don’t even know about it

Premonition

She’s been at it a lot these days

always talking

And lately, she’s been dreaming

I take it in but it’s hard to swallow

like a pill too big and bitter

 

I dare to ask even if deep inside it hurts

I hold back tears and make a joke

I stare at her and she’s unknowing

I know why she’s worried

 

Six years since we’ve known of the cancer

Six years she has fought

I think she feels it’s getting closer

she tries to embrace the inevitable

while I try to stand strong

 

She seems to see the path ahead

despite the fog

I cling to her while she feels

she’s slipping away

 

Dark clouds hover over the rainbow

and when it pours

all I can do is bow down and pray

Calling In Sick

I wanted to work today

but dizziness struck me

worse of all, loose bowel movement

came a knockin’ at my door

I had no choice but to call in sick

and let them know I won’t be around

 

spent the entire day at the hospital

rehydrated and much better

still I’d have to call in again tomorrow

as I’m advised to rest

Sick

stuffy nose, teary eyes

and I can hardly breathe

breathing through my mouth

between gritted teeth

 

I can’t think straight

I’m not feeling right

got to get some rest

and write a good poem, despite

 

my throat hurts

feeling under the weather

some other kind of sickness

is bound to come up altogether

 

have to wrap this up

and get a good rest

hopefully tomorrow,

I’ll be at my best
