Fabled Virtue

when the Caretakers need
to be taken care of
to lean rather than be leaned on
they bestow their greatest lessons
compassion and what Love
is really all about
that you have the strength
for the really unpleasant tasks
and there are no happy endings

endings yield to beginnings
though what and when
may be mysteries
patience being a fabled virtue
keep your eyes and heart open
keep your radar on
no matter your darkness
there will come a dawn
