missing mother's touch

by sweetwoodjax

missing mother's touch
I weep for all the orphans
my suffering heart
longs for touches of comfort

may I wipe away the tears
of those who have the same need


I have been off site for a couple of weeks because my husband had another bad seizure that ended up in the emergency room having tachycardia and severely high blood pressure. Mother's day was hard for me as the first one without my mother and it really hit me hard last night for some reason. I'm waiting for my muse to kick back in. I'm having problems with my blood pressure as well. I was shopping the other day and I got real dizzy and nauseous, breaking out in a sweat. I walked over the the pharmacy so I could call my husband and the pharmacist gave me a cold bottle of water and something for nauseau so I could drive home. That night people kept telling me I didn't sound right and I had a lot of confusion as well. I couldn't figure out how to cut my flashers off and I made a major paperwork error and put two people in the same room. I'm better now, but I will probably have to have my medicine increased. Thank you to minoyasue for the beautiful picture Orphan's Dream

Thanks to rouskin who let me know this wasn't a tanka. I keep throwing an extra line in my tankas, We'll just call it a tanka plus, lol
