The Looking Glass of M.S.A.


My Heart Will Go On

For years I have been

Building memories

Of your face as you

Walk through bumpy paths

Of pain, sorrow, and laughter

For years I have stood by your side

Wiped a tear, brushed your hair

Our hearts shared the pain

Of what this terrible disease has done

We watched it take a way your step

Stripped you of your pride

Made you beg for more pain medicine

I have heard you cry at nights

Begging God to take you home

I have wept in my own pool

Al, I will always remember

The man you were

The man you are today

And when these chapters are closed

Know that you are alive in my memories

And that my heart will always go on

Helping to fight until the battle is o’er

And M.S.A. fades

Quietly into memories.

Terry Shepherd

  1. This is an excellent post. Remember the days you have had in the last couple of months, Terry. The good days. The days out. Your heart will go on.

    Incidentally, on the X Factor here in the UK this week, one of the women sung this, and she said the last time she sung was when she was on a cruise ship and they were in a storm with everybody in life jackets 🙂


      • thanks my friend. I will eat better when Al gets home. Been piecing since he hasn’t been here. So hard to eat alone. My son is sweeping all of the leaves today. Maybe two more times will do it. I put a lot of things a way in the storage shed for the winter to come. We get terrible snow and bad winds, and zero temperatures
