Sonnet IVIG

Dear weekend,

How do I love thee?  Let me count the ways...

I love thee excitedly today is my daughter's 6th birthday
I love thee that Sunday is Father's Day
My soul is warmed, knowing that the 21st is also the first (official) day of summer
I love thee graciously that although it is the summer in Texas, it's still not blazing hot....yet
I love thee hopefully the Nats sweep the Pirates this weekend and return to 1st place
I love thee tenderly, it's a weekend and time to hang out with the family
I love thee fondly, for our community pool is just a few houses away down our street

But when then do I feel a dark cloud hovering nearby?

Ah yes, because on Monday the 22nd, another IVIG treatment will commence
Feelings of anguish arise
For during this week, I'm not all here
My children know I will be tired Daddy
My wife knows she must taken on even more than she already does
and I fear that the center cannot hold

So I must find the strength to put aside my sullenness and live each day this weekend fully
Carpe diem is my maxim and leave my worries about Monday for another day
