    The Gift Of Now - a poem i wrote for my wife and carer

    Good evening all

    I wrote a poem recently for my wife, and main carer, in an attempt to express how much i appreciate and love her for all that she does. She has encouraged me to share it with other carers, so please find it below. I hope you enjoy it.

    The gift of now

    When i struggle to stand
    you uplift me,
    when i stumble
    you steady me,
    when i cry with frustration
    you cwtch me close.

    When i can't speak
    you understand me,
    when i mourn last times
    you create new memories,
    when i surrender to my weakness
    you share your unwavering strength.

    when i despair
    you remind me of hope,
    when i stamp with anger
    you stamp back, harder!
    when i close in on myself
    you open your boundless heart to me.

    When i grieve inconsolaby for a future unshared,
    a life unlived,
    a love unfulfilled
    You remind me of the precious gift of now
