My God, My God, Hear Our Cries


My God, my God

Please help

With all you can

Let me lean on you

As I am so very tired

Please God please

Let someone hear

My call for help

With Al

Last night the

Tremors were awful

We were both up

Until six this morning

And two hours

Later I am feeding him

My God, My God, Hear Our Cries


My God, my God

Please help

With all you can

Let me lean on you

As I am so very tired

Please God please

Let someone hear

My call for help

With Al

Last night the

Tremors were awful

We were both up

Until six this morning

And two hours

Later I am feeding him

I can’t do this alone

Already I am

Hearing I can’t eat

This breakfast

I am not hungry

And I turn to look

As his hands are

Beating the table

As the tremors

Move for ever more.

Here I sit at my computer

Tears falling from my eyes

Playing every song

That speaks of God

In hopes he hears

Al’s and my cries

I Know It’s Late


I wanted to go to bed. I am tired and worn from today. Being out in the sun and pushing Al in his wheelchair, lifting it in and out of the car drains me. I was going to go to bed but I had to change Al once more for the evening.

That was it, it was over. No more happy minutes for this day. Ending in sadness, and too many tears.

My brother is so scared

And yet wants the pain to leave

He and I notice too many changes

His body is wearing down

Tears and tears streaming

Questions about mainly why

He wants to go to heaven

But he is too scared

He wants to get better

But he knows it isn’t going to happen

Sitting on his bed

Holding his hands

Tremors from him

Shaking my body

Gives me some sense

Of what he is going through

Each minute of the day

I used every word I could

I tried to bring him comfort

But it is impossible to do

When he knows he is

Slipping a way

Hearing his words

Breaks my heart

As he tells me he

Feels like he won’t

Be here next week

How can I go

To my own bed

And rest knowing

He is still crying

I could not stop the tears.
