    I wrote this for Michael during the last bad time he had. It was my way of venting and not stressing him out.
    Also sorry I havent been very active, but between Michael's bad days and me having a seizure a week ago, I have been trying to rest as much as I can.
    Take Care of Y'all-
    Rose

    A Bad Day

    Sitting beside you,
    I watch as the fog consumes you.
    Trying to understand your pain,
    Waiting for the fog to lift
    Watching for a hint of cognizance in the eyes I have grown to love.

    You try to shake it off, this fibro-fog
    I watch you fight your battle,
    A feeling of helplessness overwhelms me
    Wishing, hoping I could help you fight this thing.
    But realizing I cannot do anything for you.

    At last you sleep,
    I lay curled up at the foot of the bed,
    Not really sleeping myself,
    Watching you stir, hugging the empty pillows beside you.
    I want to hold you, but I know the pain would be too great
    So I lay there, waiting and watching...Just in case.
