Where do you go when the one you love and care for has reached rock bottom?
Where do you go for help? Support? Advise?
Or even a hug?
You have tried all the usual channels.
Made phone calls and visits explaining how he is.
Jiggled and juggled all the new meds.
Ignored all his pleas and even the screams when nothing is working.
Where do you go?
You can walk away and leave him be.
You can let him struggle on alone and scared
You can ring for the medics who will take him to A&E
Where they will tut and sigh saying oh what can we do?
So home he comes to a dark empty house
Sorry and sad to know how he treated you.
Where did you go?
You went for a walk alone with your dog.
To think and remember so much you have shared
You didn't go far - you couldn't do that.
But the question remains ....where do you go?
