One week since I drove a car

One week since I could breathe easy

Yesterday marked

First steps, out of bed, eyes facing light

Nights are spent

Sitting up

Lungs laboring

Against infection that burns

Body wracked

Muscles spasm and ache endlessly

But demands await

And life must resume

Into the hurry up and go

And do

And be

And never



Even for a minute

And when there is a pause

A quiet space

It will change

And change once more

One week

Is all I get

Whether recovery is complete

Or no

It is time

To do it all

Constantly ~ Caroline A. Slee
