Going Now

For my daughter. 24, born with autism, kicking it's arse everyday. Now moved out into assisted accomodation....& loving her little bit of independence - place not the same without her. 

 

Thought it'd be Peter Pan forever 

Brave new world, brave together

 

Counts gone, Independence Day 

Back at weekends, I hear you say?

 

Bare room, bed & departed belongings 

Stepped inside, to unfamiliar surroundings

 

Mother wears her heart on her sleeves

Father falls apart, on his own when she leaves

 

Sister like me, absent, but don't fear

We'll always be there, never disappear 

 

To a person who gave four seasons in one day

Happiness  & happiness, forever, come what may

 

If you ever lay in bed & let your mind roam

Remember that familiar place, is still your home

What it is to be human, Jeff. You never stop feeling responsible. Straight from the heart - thanks for sharing and reminding us of our frailty and sensitivity. Bravery at all times!

Lump in my throat.
While it touched a tender spot at the same time it gave me the wisdom and strength to accept the harsh realities of life.

Love transcends all Jeff and it shows!! Raj

Jeff, this is so touching. The joy of love and the pain of letting go, missing those we love...describes beautifully how life puts us to the test. Paul
