Alone no more

I used to work for the NHS, and during that time I worked on several projects aimed at supporting carers in my local community. It is currently Carers Week here in the UK and so I wanted to write something for/about the true unsung heroes who keep our society going.

 

Alone No More

 

Alone no more.

Sanctuary never sought
Because you take the blows
For one so loved.

Bound by
Honesty of soul,
You are the beating heart of us.

Take a single second,
Contemplate the naval,
Or the sunset.
No selfishness in that.

Society will craft a way
Because you give it all.
Every day
Forsaking yours
So another has the majesty
Of life
As free from pain as can be.

Alone no more
Unknown friend of mine.

 

I would strongly urge you to have a look at the work of the organisations involved in Carers Week and see if there is any way you can support them.
