As you sleep

Pin It It was quiet in the house this morning.

I wanted to be sure you were okay.

I walked in and watched you sleeping.

I thought of how you used to watch me when I was little.

Time has changed, hasn’t it?

Life is steadily moving onward and the roles will one day reverse.

I will take care of you, as you once took care of me.

Some days it will be hard, others will be easy.

We’ll both be learning to adjust…

Until you’re ready to go to leave my home for your new life.

This reminded me of the time I was caring for my Dad in the last month of his battle with cancer.

Beautiful words.

"I will take care of you, as you once took care of me."

As it should be.
