Robbed: Joe's Lament (from YWBB Extreme Caretaking thread)

(1/2) > >>

canadiangirl:
I am quoting from Ann E, who is a member, writing in 2010, quoting another member, Joe A., who wrote this poem which I think is a great descriptor of Extreme Caregiving:

"Robbed: Joe's Lament"

The hope for a better year became
The hope for a better month
The hope for a better month became
The hope for a better day
The hope for a better day became
The hope for a better moment
One perfect island in an ocean of pain

anniegirl:
Yes. That.

Thanks for saving it and sharing.

I cried when I read that the first time because it rang so true. Five years later, it still does.

Yep

I still prefer to live in the moment, for better or worst.

I am with you on this one.  Looking to the past leaves me longing for the life I no longer have.  Looking to the future, I am filled with fear of the unknown.  So, for now, I continue to focus on the here and now.
