A Carers Reflection

June 9, 2020

A Carers Reflection
Where did you go?
A carer’s reflection
 
You were the strong one
Would hold me 
Waiting for my tears to dry.
But now you cry.

You knew how to do it all.
We called you Mr Fixit
You mended, sorted into proper places
Now I must tie your laces.
 
You were the funny one,
Could always make me smile.
But now blank eyes, blank face
Who took your place?

You were the house's heart.
Welcoming all
Now I'm someone you just used to know.
Where did you go?
