DEAR FRANCES By Frances H. Kakugawa
Omoiyari . . . Think of others first and good karma will return to you. — Frances H. Kakugawa
These poems were shared at our recent poetry writing support group for caregivers. Our discussions follow each caregiver’s poetry.
I am sad because my sister-in-law is terminally ill
I am sad because my son has stage IV cancer
I am sad because my two brothers are gravely ill
I am sad because my wife is in a vegetated state.
I am awash in sadness because I love.
I know sadness is the price you pay for love
and it is better to feel sad than not.
— Bob Oyafuso
