I wish I was able to give her a bean and her pain would go away. A magical bean that lifted the burdens of worry and anguish. A bean to save the day, as beans so rarely do.
But sadly, I have no bean. I only have my own sense of inadequacy, frustration, and sadness.
If only I had a bean that would fix everything. What a happy little bean that would be! Hooray legume of power!
All I have is my love, devotion and upcoming trip this month to bestow my physical compassion on my lovely girlfriend, as she fights to the bitter end with her cancer.
We will get through this, with or without beans.
