My Poem for ME Awareness

I wrote this poem in  2001 
I have had ME since 1995
I still have ME in 2011
And I am still waiting for life to begin

Old Before Time

32 (now 42) years of age
Prime of life
For some that is
Me I am unfortunate
Have a debilitating illness
For which there's no cure
Not terminal
But may as well be
Life on hold
Awaiting a re-birth
To a zestful existence
The former self
Never stopped to rest
Now all I do is…rest
Sympathise with the elderly
Understand their plight
Feel their limitations
But I could wait for that
When it is my time
But for now
I have a lot of living to do

J Andrews
