By Ros Lemarchand

To have a better day
The pain to go away

This fatigue will soon end
And my body can mend

To find energy
Then start recovery

To improve my pacing
Against all I’m facing

I find new ways to cope
Which come within my scope

To increase more awareness
So disbelief is less

That I can work again
And all’s not lost in vain

To better understand
This dreadful M.E. land

For a future healthy
And at last M.E. free!
