AT THE END OF HIS TETHER

He changed her pad

then changed her bedding.

He was exhausted.

'Don't worry' he said. 'Can't be helped'

No response.

'Won't be long now'

She'd hardly said a word for years.

She had no idea who he was.

 

They'd spent a lifetime together.

He loved his wife.

That night he kept his promise and ended her life.

He'd finally reached the end of his tether.

One can only wonder how many live lives of "quiet desperation"
with those they loved who have become different people with
incessant demands that drive patient souls to the boundaries pf
emotional and physical endurance.
