We know that Rick and Sally fell in love.
We figured their relationship would thrive.
They seemed to put commitment plans above
all selfishness, and they were 35.
Rick’s health conditions came as a surprise,
when sadness grew and daily pain attacked,
but Sally was his mainstay. She’d advise,
confer, support her mate and marriage pact.

She never lost her trust in medicine.
She modeled patience and tenacity,
and Rick in time remembered how to grin.
His symptoms eased – his days are now pain-free.
She met the threat, deflecting a divide,
but lately Sally feels dissatisfied.
