Whispers


Whispers at night

Saying, “it will be okay…don’t worry”

I wish for those whispers to be true

Life is coming to a close for so many

And us

What to do, where to go?

Ah, just to be free of the pain without the drugs

….just for a few hours…

My love and I only have hours

We know….

We wish to believe, though, in the whispers that sometimes come at night

I watch my husband at night, twitching, sweating, watching the muscles jerk – – twisting in pain

We join each other in the pain and try so hard to help each other

In the end that’s all we can do. 

Try

Because, we know that we never were at the control station of this fragile existence of what we call life

It is all in the hands of a higher power
