It’s funny how she has always lived and loved her life
And loved every joy of it
Every pain was worth it, that made her grow
Now the creeping reality is testing her
Her unwanted guest (PD) is demanding more
Than she wishes to give up
An urgency , plans in place
Notes and check lists
Safely placed letters and gifts of thoughts for those she love
Time is running away, even though she lives in the moment.
Amongst the pain and tiredness
A colourful light bounces around
she catches it on paper with ink and scrawl
Paintbrush swishes and pours pictures
On to canvas.
There is an urgency now
To leave her footprint where she has have been
To catch the beauty in her head
Before the emptiness swallows her up
And she forgets…..
