Born Free


Al has been in Hospice House                                                            baby after bath #11

For three days

I am anxious for him to come home

I miss him in so many ways

But while he has been gone

My body and mind are no longer three

For I feel I have been born free

My thoughts are brighter

My smile is back

I want to jump and down

I feel back on track

This must be what respite means

Regenerating our souls

Ready to tackle another day

When I once again take on a caregiver role.
