To Cover Again -Recovery
I have recovered from childbirth,

recovered from car wrecks,

recovered from violence,

recovered from near death.

I have recovered my favorite chair

recovered my lost files,

recovered my books,

recovered my stolen wallet.

I have recovered my dignity,

recovered my love life,

recovered my hopes,

recovered my dreams.

What else is left?

I can't recover time.

I can't recover words spoken.

I can't recover mistakes.

I'll just recover my sense of humor,

hold the ones I love close

and wait patiently I guess,

for the next recovery.

Author's Notes:
Say the word enough times and it loses its meaning somehow. It's just life and it's like covering up the past and getting a new start. Sorry about the incessant repetition. Ouch.

I actually liked the repetition. It makes you realize what we can recover from and what we can't.
