Sadness

Sadness is here again my love

I see it in your shoulders as you let out a shaky breath

I see it in your face as your cheeks begin their familiar quiver

I see it in the soft pout of your lips

I see it in the tear that leaves its streak as it falls down your beautiful face

 

 
 

Sadness is here again my son

Why has it returned so soon

Is it unbidden, a feeling without a home

Is it a desire left unmet, a hope without words

 
 

Sadness is here again my boy

Why does it descend once more

Is it light and fleeting, or will it sit heavy and hold on

Is it a memory of something that once was

Is it a dream of what will never be

 
 

Sadness is here again my love

Why does it push me away from you

Does it not know a mother’s arms are meant to hold

Does it not know a mother’s words are meant to soothe

Does it not know a mother’s kiss removes the tears

 

 
 

Sadness is here again my love, and it closes your door

Does it not know that I am still here

Does it not know that my heart still lingers with yours

Does it not know that it is no longer yours alone

Sadness is here again my love

    Hello I just read your article in the May 29 edition of the abbotsford news. Can you help clarify use of respite funds? I have government respite of 16 hours per month but they told me I can’t use the hours when I’m working or in school. Where would I apply for respite to be able to do this as the reporter indicated in the article?
