Crosses to Bear
Parents with Alzheimer’s,
so lost and alone,
God sent me to them
to help bring them home.
Many challenges faced,
some easy, some hard
kept me close, and
wandering not to far.
Learned compassion,
for others and myself,
Learned fear could not be
placed on a shelf.
Parents with Alzheimer’s,
no longer here.
God gave me more
crosses to bear.
Several months later,
his light shining bright,
God said come to me
sweet child, and
walk through the light.
Knowing she was leaving,
my best friend said goodbye.
She hugged me,
kissed my tears and,
left me to cry.
God, no more crosses,
no more can I bear.
God please, please
 take away my fear.
Faced with uncertainty,
his cancer so rare,
its taken its hold on
a man who is my dear.
God, no more crosses,
no more can I bear.
God please, please
 take away my fear.

Heart breaking and so touching. Sometimes a person wonders how they can endure so much pain and why its all happening. Its the pitts and depths of dispair! Your poem brings raw emotions to the surface and takes the reader to what you are expierencing!..Blessings to you Deborah! Keep the faith!...M
