I was inspired to post today’s poem by Robert Lee Brewer’s prompt at http://www.writersdigest.com/whats-new/2015-april-pad-challenge-day-24 . I wrote it years ago, and it’s included in my collection, How to Build a Better Mousetrap: Recollections and Reflections of a Family Caregiver. Click on the Dropbox link below the poem to hear me read it.
Loving, caring, sensitive,
with gentle kisses and caresses,
he knows how to make me feel good,
although he can only use one arm and leg.
When I press my face to his cheek,
drink in his sweet aroma,
my worries and doubts melt away.
