Today’s prompt is: “Dreams” video Fleetwood Mac
I’ve never heard this song before. It was interesting listening. What I guess is the bridge of the song, talks about what one’s lost or what one had. I’ve decided to base my post off of that portion of the piece. As a result, I thought I’d share a poem I wrote, July 30, 2013, that mentions what I’ve lost, but more importantly highlights what I’ve gained as a chronic migraineur. Please see below:
… when I wasn’t sick,
but took life for granted.
… when I was out 80% of the time,
but read less.
… when I wasn’t dependent on others,
but took family and friends for granted.
… when I could eat what I wanted,
but paid no attention to health.
… when I sympathized with the sick,
but lacked empathy.
… when I worked,
but didn’t save.
… when I married my husband,
but didn’t appreciate,
“In sickness and in health”,
or how much he really loves me.
… when I didn’t realize how much I could learn from a trial.
