Caregiver Spirit
By Carrie Laks, MSW

It hits me hard
As I plow along
Like a robot
Feels like I go it alone
The days and nights
Blend into one another
A faint glimpse of joy
Eludes like wind blows a feather
Thanks for sharing the journey
The young and the old
Find refuge and safety
Confidences safe that are told
There is strength in numbers
A trust and a bond
A safe place
People with whom I feel one
I spot the rainbow
Small steps I make
With those at my side
The light glows
Capturing the light
Carrying the torch
I now remember
Starting as a mere glimpse
A promise unfolding
Now the flame is within me
Beauty to share radiantly shines
…The spirit of humankind
