I found out today that my friend had a double stroke; that is, a stroke on both sides of her brain. This completely incapacitates her and I do not know if she will come out of it, I pray she does, but only God knows for sure.
Last year, before Christmas I lost another dear friend to Cancer. She was also a beautiful soul. And then the day after Christmas I lost my big sister. Before all these deaths happened I should have known, for a terrible omen was given me. My sweet baby Chihuahua was killed right before my eyes right after Thanksgiving. I was a bout to walk her, and how she loved walks. I dropped her leash, which scared her, and she fell into the street underneath a small truck passing.
I have not recovered from all these events, and then two weeks ago my brother told me he had Cancer and is on Chemo already.
And now this; my friend of over 40 years has had a double stroke.
I remember when I was a young girl, my mother having to go to many funerals or hearing about many friends she knew who were passing or had passed away. I remember how sad she was. I completely understand her feelings now.
So I wrote a poem this afternoon. It just poured out of me from a brokenheartedness that began with my little Chihuahua, Frieda. Please go to my “Romance Poet” page and read my poem, and let me know if you are going through similar circumstances or if you have gone through such circumstances. Or, if you have not had circumstances similarly, just wanting to empathize. I will appreciate any love and support I can get. I am praying for my friend to live. It will most likely be a long haul to wellness, but I am willing to go through it with her, just to have her here a little longer…
