When You Are Sick And Alone

When you are sick and all alone with no one to take care of you,
your environment does not give you the break a person would.
It does not pamper you.
Your reality and the demands of your life are no less brutal
and you have to fight the same bitter battles of survival
that you do on a daily basis when you are healthy.
But, what a victory!
You push through anyway and discover
you have a much greater strength than you would ever have known
Had a honey been there to baby you through so you never had to get out of bed.
