patient

a long patient wait

idly whiling and wasting away
whilst the malignly incurable careers purposefully on
the persistent pain busily insistent

restless cries rise

long days drag endlessly on

the wheels turn slowly
please wait patiently
they’ll be round soon

brief time rushes effortlessly past

still silence falls

motionless lips murmur now no more
their pleas and thank-yous over, they cease their quiet gratitude
and the interminable ends as a line is drawn under

a long patient wait

Nothing particularly interesting to say other than I'm a GP with an interest in emotional well-being, an avid Somerset County Cricket Club supporter and a poor example of a Christian who likes to put finger to keyboard from time to time and who is foolish enough to think that someone out there may be interested enough to read what I've written. Some of these blogs have grown over time and some portions of earlier blogs reappear in slightly different forms in later blogs. Apologies for the repetition. What I have posted today (6th August 2018) consists of what I have written over the last few years - whether I write anything ever again, only time will tell.
