Guest Blog Post About Alcoholics in the Family
A Guest Post from an Alcoholic with 30 Days Recovery
I talked with Rick for two hours the other day to listen and to talk, most of all to be a friend. Rick is an older gentlemen going through a Cancer scare and dealing with his Alcoholism.
Rick is about to get 30 days sober under his belt. His next goal is 60 days sober and hopefully 90 days sober.
I for one intend to support him. I ask anyone who reads this post to share it and make a comment so Rick can read it.
This wll help Rick get through his day without a drink. Lets pray for he can find a life of sobriety.
I watched as if I were a far off,
As my brother slowly walked away.
My heart ached as if it had
been pierced by some cold instrument
made especially to bring pain.
I called out to him more than once,
to return to me
But he only heard the voice of a stranger
and never turned to see his childhood shadow.
He has now passed beyond the horizon
singing his own song walking with a cane.
I can no longer see him from where I must remain,
But standing there, I extend my waiting hand
Knowing he will never take it again.
But in his passing I found
that the mortar he had left behind
was sufficient to mend my burdened heart.
