My Time at Last!

by Cheryl Merrick

Pushing my tired body,
so Garrett can work and devote his time
and energies to his businesses,
I struggled to keep up with our home,
help children write creatively,
give visiting teaching reports,
support friends and family,
answer questions on,
and assist my husband with his businesses.

Year after year I drug myself along,
finding little time to nurture myself.
Finally, there was little left to give.
No longer able to enter buildings,
I spent most of my time in my home,
weak and tired,

I have set down some of my responsibilities.
My husband has retired and is now able to help me.
I can finally enjoy time to rest.
At last my time has come.
