  1. We are, as John Masefield long ago put it, ‘too broke to mend’ . . . I’ll sit by your side at the ‘fortunate window’ and figuratively hold your hand!

  2. I found this work especially powerful for me; especially since I blew out my back almost 2 years ago. The back and forth with doctors has yielded nothing but a drawer full of half-used meds that don’t work, and a prescription for a cane 😦

    May I re-blog this work? I’m still rather new to WordPress.

  3. Another significant poem for Me and My Husband. He went off of pain medication (Tridural) He had been on for over ten years and is now virtually pain-free and exercising and considering an across Canada plane trip to be with His Family in British Columbia — a trip of misery two years ago. A beautiful, powerful poem, Paul. And important.

  4. Reblogged this on Triad773 and commented:
    I typically don’t write about things I am going through that are pain related, but this poem spoke to me of some of my own experiences. I thought it powerful enough that I wanted to share this work of a fellow blogger. I hate measuring how a day goes by how difficult it is to put on my shoes and socks in the morning, but I must keep trying to find a solution.
