On the shore hands entwined we lie
The glare of the sun in our eyes
She cracks a smile to my surprise
Nor have I heard a single cry

 Facial caress I do apply
Change the mood from sorrow to bliss
Self harm thoughts she so does dismiss a calmness about the air
The lord above answered prayer
My love and faith squashed her conflicts

**My wife had off today, and what a glorious change in mood compared to the last few weeks. Yesterday being a culmination of the worst of it. I am grateful to friends and family online and off who offered support and prayers...she has got to keep the momentum in high gear**

    1. She is being proactive, made quite a few appointments even was able to boost when she sees her therapist but may need a med adjustment (kind of sucks that she can’t see her psychiatrist till September, I swear sometimes it feels as if the system is against ya)

    1. Here’s hoping, unfortunately she works today ( as a caregiver to the elderly) with a client who doesn’t have air conditioning and we are in the middle of a heat wave ๐Ÿ˜‘
