    CAREGIVER BLUES BY MSLUCIOUSB

    I CARE FOR YOU AS YOU CARED FOR ME.
    I DON'T KNOW HOW ELSE YOU EXPECT ME TO BE.
    THE ARMS THAT ENFOLD ME NOW WITHERED AND WEAK.
    BRING TEARS TO MY EYES WHEN YOU DON'T WANT TO SPEAK.
    WE SHARED SO MUCH PAIN AND HAVE BEEN THROUGH MUCH
    TOGETHER. I LONG FOR THE DAY WHEN YOU FEEL MUCH BETTER.

    I REACH FOR YOU BROWN WITHERED HAND WHEN THE DOCTOR
    SPEAKS WORDS YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND. I BEHOLD YOUR WISDOM AS THAT OF A CHILD AT YOUR KNEE. I CARE FOR YOU
    CAUSE YOU CARED FOR ME.

    NO, MONETARY WEALTH, COULD REPLACE MY WISH TO RESTORE
    YOUR HEALTH. I LOOK IN YOUR EYES AND SEE TEARS AS THEY
    GATHER. I KNOW YOU WOULD TELL ME , BUT YOU REALLY NOT
    RATHER. TO SPEAK OF THE CHILDREN WHO ARE NOT THERE FOR
    YOU WOULD ONLY ADD HEARTACHE TO ONE WHO IS BLUE.

    WHEN I HOLD YOU AND TRY TO CONSOLE YOU IT MAKES ME
    FEEL BLUE. WHY AREN'T THE OTHERS RIGHT HERE WITH YOU.
    I BATHE YOU AND FEED YOU , READ TO YOU LAUGH WITH YOU.
    JUST THE WAY YOU USED TO DO.
    MY BACK ACHES FROM CARRYING YOUR LOAD. MY FEET ARE BURNING FROM WALKING THIS LONELY ROAD.

    I DO WHAT I MUST, FOR IN GOD I TRUST.
    I DO FOR YOU WHAT YOU HAVE ALWAYS DONE FOR US.

    sometimes people present to us an image they want us to see, but which is not the real person they are..hold her hand , share her love and wait for her to once again find herself...and remember we only have those we love, on loan...
