Caregivers Who Have Lost Someone
Isn't this true?
Hey ALH, That works out well if what our mind is replaying are the happier memories. More and more I find these returning. I'm grateful for that.
Even so, I still feel lost.
The lyrics to an old Jackson Browne song (These Days) have been playing in my mind lately. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kk7vCHvof4
"Well I've been out walking
I don't do that much talking these daysThese daysThese days I seem to think a lotAbout the things that I forgot to doFor youAnd all the times I had the chance to
And I had a loverIt's so hard to risk another these daysThese daysNow if I seem to be afraidTo live the life I have made in songWell it's just that I've been losing so long
Well, I'll keep on moving, moving onThings are bound to be improving these daysOne of these daysThese days I sit on corner stonesAnd count the time in quarter tones to ten, my friendDon't confront me with my failuresI had not forgotten them"
I'm not very cheerful tonight. Hopefully you are having a better day. Cynthia
Hi Cynthia, Your right, but my mind isn't replaying the happier memories. It's mostly replaying everything that happened after she got sick. For some reason I just can't shake it.
It's gotten a little easier, so maybe I'm slow and need a little more time.
Certainly a lot of truth to the lyrics of that song.
Hope your still playing the drums and keeping busy.
Good luck and take care of yourself.
I've been a widower for 375 days now. Here's my favorite poem:
Two men in prison,
Locked behind bars,
One saw mud,
The other saw stars.
George, Maybe the prisoner that saw stars, didn't have as much time to serve. LOL.
