It’s no secret,
The love you had for me.
Go ahead admit it!
I need to hear it, I’ll forget,
But in this moment,
I wish for you to say it.
Had a couple of rough years,
latest challenge, I’m disclosing in the way
I found myself dealing with stress.
Diagnosed a few days ago with incomplete Lupus.
The disease has taken residence in my head.
First I thought it hashimoto’s
and I have that and LCIS as well.
But I found myself getting confused
With ever changing moods.
After a series of distress
All I loved became a struggle.
My speech and words deliberate,
what I need to communicate, I forget.
Say it now because I need to hear.
You love me to the moon and back.
Then please remember, you told me,
Because one day I may not recall
you said what I longed to hear.
I loved you my friend,
the million billions of you!
Poet’s Note –
A mother’s love for her children is never ending. But I loved many others as much as the ones I held. And I am inflicted with all these ailments but to the many who cared for me, I also cared for them. Lupus today is very treatable if given effective treatment. Don’t suffer in silence speak out.
