A Mother's Selfish Plea
By Darrell and Kathy Adams   

Share    Print Save  Author Tracker

My eldest son Ben, previously referred to on this site as "Hummingbird" is in the hospital for "Transient Gobal Amnesia". Basically, the inability to make new memories. They have run all kinds of tests for his brain and now are checking out his heart thoroughly, which, news to me, can effect the ability of the brain to function to that extent. The poem refers more to his piossible mental departure, and I know it sounds negative and self centered, but it is 3:30 in the morning and so much has happened this year I just felt like whining a bit. With God on our side and a loving family we will be fine. I think everyone has been in the self pity pit if only for a short time. God Bless us all.

 

 

A Mother’s Selfish Plea
 
Sometimes I feel like a plague,
visited upon my own heart this way.
Illness and death of the ones I love
fits star crossed family like a hand in glove.
I am waiting for the next, or current I should say,
victim to be sentenced by the doctors today.
Please, I don’t want to lose any more dear hearts.
Hummingbird don’t fly away even before I depart.
Be strong to worry and enchant me for many more days
And decades too, if the Lord be willing, okay?
 
Kathy Adams 2012  for Ben
