Borrowed Time

The weight of the waiting is crushing me…

Even the best-case scenario will likely steal years of our precious time together.

Worst case I can’t even begin to process…

I don’t mean to sound ungrateful…

So many never find what we have been lucky enough to share for so long.

You are my world, my light, my strength.

You’ve given me everything I ever wanted and more than I knew I needed.

Navigating this world without you is just incomprehensible to me.

I never considered… the cost of loving with your whole heart so completely… could be the unbearable pain of loss and the devastation left in its wake the day that it has to end.

May you never have to cry out in pain?

While navigating your life’s mundane…

And if you do I hope those who’re dear

Come running from places far and near

To guide you past agony and frustration

Of injuries present without explanation

I wish you sweet, gentle, speedy healing

This part of aging is less than appealing
