A Sister’s Love

Celestine wrote a Nonet a few days ago which is where a poem starts with nine syllables on the first line, eight on the second down to one on the ninth line. As soon as I saw it, I knew I was going to write one for Terry. She does a wonderful job looking after her brother who suffers with Multiple System Atrophy and Parkinson’s Disease. So Terry, this is for you.

A Sister’s Love

Looking after a brother who is
terminally ill, is hard on
the mind and physically
as well. But Terry is
working selflessly
giving Al the
best life that
she can
give.

    • Thank you. I felt that she needed to be recognised for what she does for her brother. She could have sent him to a hospice and just left him there, but she doesn’t. She took him home to look after him herself. That is sisterly love.
