Funny, feelings, Furious
Here It is: My A To Z Challenge. An adventure! My attempt at telling you my story. I care for my husband who has end-stage Parkinson's disease. We also have two teenage grandchildren who reside with us.
We have good days and we have bad days. Hope you will follow along....A TO Z!
He can be so funny.
He doesn't always mean to be.
But underneath the surface.
His humor is still there.
It is laughing that gets me through
The days that are so long.
When I think about what's happened.
I can tend to smile.
When he's being funny.
We all brighten up.
For to us it means that he is okay.
And we can laugh for another day.
The feelings that we always share.
Are what gets me through.
The darkness that lies just underneath
The surface of my life.
I know the feelings are bubbling
To overflow soon.
I have to wonder which will come
The sadness, the anger, the laughter, or the blues.
One of them is always there.
Waiting for it's turn.
To share with me the reasons.
This journey is so hard.
It makes me furious.
What good does that do.
Who am I furious with, you ask?
Hell, I don't know.
I can't be furious with him.
He didn't ask for this.
It followed him here.
In his genes. He got it from his dad.
But furious is the feeling of the day
And there is nothing funny about that.
