A Carers Point Of View

I love you so and I want you to know That the care I feel is deep I won't let you be alone. I see you struggle as you Force on smiles through the pain But it feels like hope's in vain! You're stuck in the center Of what's supposed to help. It's doing nothing useful Nothing to benefit your health! It seems that sleep is a luxury Of it deprived are you... This is a carers point of view! ( Chorus ) I know you tell me nothing can be done That illness takes its toll on everyone And it's merely a process that comes with age When abilities start to fade... Arthritis is rife Part of the norm in your life Frustration will flare With no energy there. If I had the power I'd take all your ills away In a heartbeat Right away! ( Chorus ) I know you cling to the hope Of a better time When the quality of health Won't be on the decline. Your faith and trust In the promises made Is how you cope with trials today. If I could I'd swap my youth, my health And carry all of your Agonies myself. The things you really need I cannot do for you... This is a carers point of view.

Beautifully composed Lyric Natasha, heartbreaking to see old folk struggle as they advance in years, good health is everything. Tom

It is Tom, no amount of care takes the problem away but trying to keep positive is the best way the carer and those cared for can deal with it. Sharing funny memories, making people laugh is also good medicine ( Smiley face ) thanks for your thoughts Tom. All the best to you and yours.
