I stand for a while, I look and see
The shadow of someone, I once knew as me.
The tears come and go, “I need to be stronger!”
I shout at the mirror – “come on how much longer?!”
I know I’m not well yet, I know I’m not right
Accepting the struggle, is part of the fight.
I wish I could wave a wand in the air
To make me become recognisable Claire.
But that will take time – it’s been over a year
And I won’t forget that you’ve all been here.
Support and advice, laughter and tears
I hope that our friendship lasts many years ? xx
