Went to the doctor the other day
He made some notes and said, "prepare to sway"
My 10-year honeymoon is over now,
The slope is slippery; holy cow!
Freezing , swaying, blurry eyes
Each day offers another surprise.
This bossy,independent self
Refuses to be put on the shelf.
Calls for help were heard aloud
And the Mothership appeared as from a cloud.
We've got what you need, the speaker blared,
We can help so don't be scared!
Information and support is what I need,
"No problem" they said, just take our lead.
Webinars, help sheets, resources galore,
I stepped right through their magic door.
The journey is a challenge, that's for sure,
And so far there is no cure,
But with the Mothership in our zone,
I clearly know we're not alone.
During Covid, when Zoom was born
It saved the members from being forlorn,
"What the heck is Zoom?" some ask,
Not to worry ~ there's an App for that.
Some may wonder what I'm talking about,
Parkinson Society BC without a doubt.
Their support, compassion and dedication
Light the path with care and education.
We deeply appreciate the work they do,
With sincere gratitude, we say THANK YOU!
