In that corner there
I lay my life
to keep it safe
from all this strife.
A caregiver you wish me to be?
Why there must be someone else.
It is certain that I am not qualified
to do what you request.
I will do this thing you ask of me
and be his legs and hands.
A caregiver I am meant to be
and all that it demands.
Caregiving is a labor of love
Performed for those we truly adore
I will do everything I can to help him
This I will do and so much more.
Sometimes I glimpse my life in that corner
I remember how much fun it used to be
Before my body felt so tired
And life was more carefree.
One day I will regain my life
And put down this caregiver role.
I will retrieve my life from that corner there
And thus reclaim my soul.
