I am - Stronger then I am

I look at my husband, and he to I: he smiles
Unknown to him - are of my fear of the miles
That I may not be able too travel
For each days walking
It is struggling on the gravel
Forever
I am slipping
A step back
From where I want to be
Of this, he does not see
Of that, I make believe
That I am stronger than I am
My heart, it lies of in the weary - when it can
After the role of mother and the wife that I am
It has done what needs to be of done
I wear a mask in daily, from my family, and then of from some'
Even though I fear the miles
The miles...
That are of yet to come
That I may not be able too travel
For each days walking
It is struggling on the gravel
I am slipping
A step back
From where I want to be
Of this, he does not see
Of that, I make believe
That I am stronger than I am
My heart, it lies of in the weary - when it can
For I am and I have to be
That sturdy old oak tree
For them to lean on
I need
To stay strong
For as a mother and as a wife
I do belong
And this Multiple Sclerosis
It is merely the thongs that I am wearing'
In these miles that I travel
That cause me to struggle on the gravel
Taking me a step back
From where I want to be
Of this, he does not see'
Of that, I make believe
I am - stronger then I am....
