Reversal

When I was yours,
you caught me when I stumbled and kept me near to avoid harm.
I know I was everywhere, so it must have been exhausting. You still smiled.
Love was your lesson plan, and you taught it with enthusiasm.
When I couldn't find the path, you held the light. You made certain I was never alone.

Now that your mine,
when you fall, I make certain doctors take care of you.
You can go nowhere now, so I bring you my everywheres. You still smile.
Love is our lesson plan and we weave it expertly.
You don't recognize the path now, or me, but you are never alone.

Now that you're gone,
we can both rest.
