Out of the water

Out of the water

come's my emotion's

I am a care taker.

some day's it feel's 

like I am drowning.

I take care of my mother

you see,

watching her in pain and suffering

it just seem to consume me.

Out of the water

I try to take deep breath's

while thinking, why do the other

family member's seem to stay away,

don't they see I need help

with our mother today.

As I sit by her bed ,

I know they heard what I said!

Out of the water

it is the waiting  as a care taker

it get to be to much,

as the days go flying by

and not leaving the house

I get a  strange feeling

like lonely and out of touch.

I know when the day come's 

and her life will come to a end,

I will be sad to lose my mother

and my best friend.

Out of the water

I'm not too sure if this is fictional or the truth. This is quite a sad write. Nevertheless I went through this once when my mother fell ill, she is now much better. All I saw was that friends/relatives become few when you are in need, do not dwell your strength on that, its life. Keep taking care of your mother, God is in control. xxx

Hi it is true and I do take care of my mom . I feel a lone sometimes. I know there many, many family's that can relate to my poem. One person is the chosen one to take it all on.
