No 223 October 26
Fingers isnít well right now,
Heís like another human being,
Heís so tired and weary,
Not much of him have | been seeing.
He comes down for about half an hour,
No improvement can I see,
I know in just a short while,
Back to bed itís going to be.
Heís sleeping for most of the day,
Heís also lost his taste,
He just does not feel hungry,
A special meal would be a waste.
Such a lot of our family have got it,
This second spike seems really bad,
We canít do anything for one another,
The world feels to have gone mad.
I now know what it feels like,
To face this time on your own,
With Geoff in bed most of the time,
I just feel all alone.
I expect him to feel better,
Each time he comes downstairs,
But that just isnít happening,
I get a feeling of despair.
But I will pull us through this,
Iím a tough old bird you see,
I can assure you heís in good hands,
He can rely on me.
