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.
