    I first heard this poem last Monday evening. My beloved husband has bipolar type II disorder - at the moment he is a very needy, ill person. Very different from the strong, engaging man our world loves and respects. You and I made me cry - it describes perfectly an enduring love that sometimes goes wrong through no fault of the two individuals. (Report) Reply
