Hospital pitstop

I know the dark space that operations and medication can do to your headspace. This cards for mum. After a second operation I know she’s struggling. When a loved one is in hospital you can’t always be with them, especially these days. That makes things so tough. Wish I could be there with her. This short poem is for her.

Love you to the moon and back but get that things are hard
Thinking of you heaps today so thought I'd send this card

Imagine I am sitting there on your bed and all
We'll laugh at life's twists and turns...beats staring at a wall!

We'll chat of meds that work best or needles that you score
The kindness of your nurses and patients that do snore 

This place is a pitstop and it's bumpy on the way
So seatbelt on, hold on tight, lets take it day by day
