Grief besets me, as I live in the dark,
The future is hidden, I know not what will come.
Watching my son experience depression, seems unreal, so unfair,
He laughs and is happy, he studies with success,but it’s not how he feels.

My magic wand would sweep it all away,
The doubts, the thoughts of suicide,
The depression would disappear, and so too the internal struggle.
Would he still be the same person? I know not, I am lost.

So with my arms open wide I shower him with precious Love,
I encourage his independence, and pray to God above.
Hoops are a plenty to jump through on this journey,
Connection with heart and letting go, is this mothers learning.

Trust in the path that the energy is flowing.
Each experience builds into a definitive pivot point,
That sends the recipient into free falling,
The journey that is unique and there’s alone.

Happiness is fleeting, it constructs the memories that support…
Allowing us to get through the times that are fraught.
Frightened we may be, in this family of ours,
Yet the happy times we experience, is what we are about.


About R Congues

Funny enough, this blog has become the expression of my hopes, dreams, love and experiences. It came about because of the situation I discovered I was in, and I am delighted to see it grow and heal into something different: I am a parent of two children, one who has experienced severe anxiety that became disabling in all aspects of their life. I am a teacher of Maths, Science and Religious Education with a Masters in Special Needs Education; I am a qualified Reiki master, with a love of art and creative experience. I am not a professional in the fields of psychology or medicine. (If you are interested in these perspectives there are many internet sites to use.) I am simply expressing my experience in my own unique way.
