You came to me…
Without warning, always silent.
I did not know how to feel with your presence…
Sad? Worried?
The only thing I was sure of was that I was scared.
At first, we all see you as something bad,
and I ask myself the same question:
Why me? Without finding an answer.
With the passage of time, I learn that
having you here is part of a life
lesson, and I appreciate more one valuable thing I have:
They refer to you in so many ways: illness,
disability, disorder, imbalance,
lifestyle, many things. I prefer to
call you a companion, a sweet companion.
