My legs won’t walk, my lungs can’t breathe.
Soon I’ll be crawling along on my knees.
My head is swimming, my eyes are weak.
I have no wish to try to speak.
My mouth is dry, my tongue is on fire.
I want to sleep. I have no other desire.
I wake ever hour with a need to pee,
But I must drink gallons of water. What’s happening to me?
I’m dizzy through lack of sleep,
I almost fall over, I’m now that weak.
My brain has slowed to a minute pace.
Thoughts of mine no longer can I trace.
Diabetes is an illness,
That’s debilitating and cruel.
It creeps up on you,
When you least expect it to!
