if i could, i would

You wake up alone
Where are you?
You look around the room
Where are you?

A smiling face comes into your room
You are unsure, a little scared
The smiling face has gentle hands
The gentle hands have love in them

You sit in the garden
The sunlight warming your cold bones
You turn your head towards the laughter
And your apprehension returns

Who are these people?
They seem kind, smiling, patient
They ask you how your day is going
What day is it?

These people hug and kiss you
You gingerly respond, unsure
They say that they’ll visit you again
Have they been before?

The smiling face guides you back to your room
Is it your room?
The smiling face and gentle hands reassures you that it is
You sit, alone, unsure

The hands filled with love feed you your supper
They say it’s your favourite
Is it?
Where are you?

If your day to day responsibilities were taken care of and you could throw yourself completely behind a cause, what would it be?
