THE WRONG PATIENT

.

It’s not that she no longer knows

the reason for her tears

It’s not that she no longer feels

the pain of all those years

.

It’s not that she no longer cares

to make her daily calls

It’s not that she no longer stays

confined within her walls.

.

It’s just that now she doesn’t see

a reason to go on

It’s just there’s nothing left that’s right

in a world where she’s

so wrong.

.

Not any longer

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.
