The Caregivers
Unknown to others all around
But truly known to only one
Energy and listening abound
For them your work is never done
Providing not just care but love
Keeping a smile hiding a tear
One is watching from above
You are holding back their fear
When all is said and all is done
From the earth this one is gone
Family members to you will tell
Dear caregiver, you’ve done well

I have rheumatoid arthritis and I’m in a wheelchair, still at this time in my life I can take care of myself. My daughter does my grocery shopping and my laundry. All my other shopping I do online. I clean my house, make my bed, take care of my cats, paint my deck, do container gardening, and on and on. I think about the possibility of my daughter having to do much more for me in the future and I feel for her already. Silly huh. Hence the poem.
