Default ALS Poem

Hi all,

I write poetry occasionally and wrote a poem for those affected by ALS. I thought I would share it. Cheers, Sal x


When I realised that all was not well
I panicked, tried to hide it and hoped not to tell

Going along pretending things were fine
Believing and hoping that this was all in my mind

Not wanting to tell you that the person who you thought would be here forever
Might be snatched from you over time, you possibly having to watch me suffer

Inside I was screaming please don稚 let this be
I want to live in my beautiful bubble, my family, my friends and me

I guessed what was wrong and started to read
About the relentless illness that may start to proceed

It sounds horrific from being someone who could do so much
Turn into someone who could not walk, talk or touch

The thought of you all seeing me like this
Makes me sad, angry and bitter of what is

Why me..why you..I don稚 think I can cope
You all having to watch me slide down a fast slippery slope

In the end I may not speak, move or touch
But please remember I知 still the same person and I love you so very much

When my time comes to join the sky
You値l need to give me a juicy fat kiss and a big wave bye-bye

At times you値l feel sad and feel lonely and blue
But remember that you will always love me and I will always love you too!

I may no longer be here in person to help heal your pain
But I知 still watching over you in spirit so keep talking to me over and over again

And when your time comes to join me in the sky, just run towards me and you値l never ever need to ever say goodbye.

I値l hold you so tight like I always used to before
And I値l kiss you and cuddle you for forever more.
