Recovery’s a slog,
Not a sprint or a race.
Each day progressing
At it’s own pace.

Pain is a skirmisher
Delaying tactics on hand
Like winter reluctant
When Spring tries to land.

Physical gains
Are more easily tracked
Today a new goal
That yesterday lacked.

Progress is slower
From walker to cane
Seldom achieved
Without accompanying pain.

It’s been a struggle,
Can’t say it’s been fun
I hope I’ll be happy
With what has been done.
