The Sounds Of Silence

I know the reason

It’s called Respite

Needed for people

Who are caregivers

The air feels stale

The walls seem bare

The sounds of

Silence are deafening                                                  empty_house_by_scarlettletters-d3fenj7

What is not

Normal I do crave

The ticking of the clock

Pierce my ears

My eyes are heavy

But sleep stalls

As I lay silently

Waiting to go to him

For he needs me

But for now

I must rest

I must get ready

For the new day

When hopefully

He will once again

Bring these

Walls to life.

  2. Respite is always needed. This was created to give the caregivers a much needed rest. He will be better and so will you. Your life will seem different. Maybe even feel that a weight has been lifted off your shoulders … and that isn’t bad … that is normal.
    Love the song …… Hugs, T!!!! 🙂


  3. I can only reiterate what the others have said. You need this time. You know it’s going to get hard soon. Take this time to sort yourself out in the calm before the storm. Rest. We are all here for you.
