The poem below was sent in by a caregiver in one of our support groups sourced from another website.
Thought it appropriate to share now due to November being a month attributed towards highlighting the unconditional, selfless sacrifices of our caregivers daily..
Please feel free to share / dedicate it to whomsoever you wish.
No more words are required, since all is encapsulated in this short yet profound poem, titled:
THE CAREGIVERS CROWN
There must be a heavenly crown for each giving soul
Who cares for the sick & disabled, whether young or old
A brilliant symbol that shines forth as a vision of gold
A fitting reward for each unspoken tale never told.
A bejeweled crown of sparkling rhinestones & pearls
To be worn by deserving caregivers in all cultural worlds
Its high time we needy take a heartfelt stand
Show gratitude for each unselfish deed & extended hand.
A crown of blood-colored rubies for those we hold dear
Formed by sleepless nights & prayers we never hear
A fitting reward for caregivers who insisted & provide
Untold comfort & service that helps to keep us alive.
Their enduring presence is a testament of their selfless will
Their living care can’t be equaled by any prescription pill
A golden crown of diamonds, rhinestones, rubies & pearls
To be worn by unpaid cargivers in all cultural worlds.
