Nothing But Time


Nothing But Time

Life goes on
with nothing new
until you say
"It's been
a dizzy day,
I just need
to be still."

In my dreams
I still can hear
you screaming in pain
and I wonder
if the time is

when this world
as I know it,

We wait for October
and second opinions.
Finding comfort
in the time we have
for doing nothing.
Holding the unknown
in our idle hands.

This one is my favorite in this poem. Sometimes, we can't keep still until we feel the weight on our fragile bodies.

We miss you too, terribly. Syd misses school but I keep reminding myself how hard it was to get her there when she was going. We think of you very often and you will always be very special to us. You and Dave are in my prayers. Sometimes this life is just one foot in front of the other, one day at a time, nothing for granted...
Love you,

I was trying to figure out what the meaning was in the poem, it sounds so sad. When I read your comment that was not what I would have guess. You and your husband will be in my thoughts and prayers. October must feel like it is ages away at this point. Hang in there and keep the faith.
