Special personal note –
My husband, Frank’s anniversary of his passing is October 10th. As many of you know, he suffered a paralyzing stroke on Sept. 9, 1993. For eleven years I was his caretaker. During that time I started to write poetry. Here is one, which I dedicate to all the caretakers of the world:
When The Life Went Out of Your Left Side
Looking at you across the counter at breakfast,
a shadow of your former self, I thought of ways
to engage you in the warp and woof of life.
Since your stroke sucked the life out of your left side,
your slow recovery was a gradual two steps forward,
one step back.
As caretaker, I had to see beyond what I was seeing,
Always seeking the glimmer in your eyes,
the response in your voice that told me we were
going in the right direction.
As a mighty river sluices through the mountain gorge,
So, too, my lifeforce funneled into your service,
your recovery, your very life.
