THE THANK YOU NOTE
THE SUPPORT GROUP
I always fear I'll be the only one there
they 're there
dealing with one spouses illness
at problems like
"When do you tell a date you have IBD?"
and other shared dilemmas
"Where is the bathroom?"
"What can I eat?'
"Will my medicine kill me?"
"Will it drive my boyfriend away?'
They dare to be vulnerable
but what I go home with is
