It finally happenedMy MS is on a tearI'm noticing changesStuff maybe I can't bearI always knew it might happenProtecting myself was uppermostThen a tiny infection settledMy immune system became a ghostEvidently I couldn't handle itIt was new and very widespreadMy walking became a shamI was often sent to my bedMy cane is no longer enoughI use furniture, walls, and chair railsAnything to catch my balanceI'm at a loss as my whole body failsI've got to wonder just how much longerI'll be handling the world like thisAlready I use a walker at timesOr a wheelchair so I won't go amissUnfortunately, I see a bit more each dayThat I've seen in others over the yearsMy time has now come also, I guessMS has won, and today there are no cheersby Jane DrebusCopyright 2010
