In My Dreams

Every night, throughout my sleep
I wander. I search.
Walking, looking.

Sometimes I find something, someone
or some others to be with,
to share with...

But, with the light of morn,
as sleep moves into wakefulness,
my companion or companions of the night disappear.
or they simply dissolve into the aether
of what appears to be reality.

Once again,
I become aware of my solitude.
I am alone;
to try to start the day;

Always with the desire to
do something of purpose on this new day.
But on most days, I just cannot.

This morning, at least, I tried to convey
my situation.

Too Little. Too Late.

Too little, too late!
Too little, too late!
Too little, too late!

And, I thought she might be better than this, but---

Carly lied.
There is no video!
And she lied convincingly.
That's scary.

Where are you?

I shouldn't have to do go though all this alone.

Where are you?

Here at the IMD Guest House, many of the women who are staying here have formed a close bond. Patient or Caretaker may make use of the community room provided here. And through casual contact there or and one of the many events provided by volunteers, many of us who have been here a while have gotten to know each other rather well and intimately.

It's amazing how women can bond so quickly and under challenging experiences. Whether the women are the ones getting treatment or the caretaker of a loved one, we know we need each other. It takes a village.
