You Are Not Alone

THE TIME DEMANDS of caregiving and the resulting exhaustion often combine to make caregivers feel very much alone. Poet Vikram Seth offers these poignant and yet comforting words:

All You Who Sleep Tonight

All you who sleep tonight
Far from the ones you love,
No hand to left or right
And emptiness above —

Know that you aren’t alone
The whole world shares your tears,
Some for two nights or one,
And some for all their years.

From his 1990 collection of poems also titled All You Who Sleep Tonight
