Just One Day
If I could take his place for just one day, I would.
For him to walk again? That would be good and well.
But for him to feel good.
Really good. Like normal good. What his feeling bad used to be? We'd take that.
For him to be so tired at the end of the day from a long day of work. Work tired. Working-hard-for-the-money-and-feeling-it-tired. We'd roll out the welcome mat to have that back.
Not ill tired. Not SCI tired.
Just one day. I would take his place.
My heart breaks on the regular for this one.
I wish I could take it away.
