Vic


 

She stares
A blank look in her face
Anybody there?
Behind the unerring gaze…
She stares
Not a flicker of emotion
Not a twitch
Her expression frozen
She stares
Does she feel pain?
I wonder…
If she could see the rain
She stares
When I held her hand
How I wish…
I had a magic wand
She stares
Not even a slight quiver
When I whispered
How much I love her…

Sad, My Mom had Alzheimers it's really like the same thing. I can relate very well to what you have written. My Mom too was the best mom when she was well. She knew her mind was going, so she sat down and had a talk with me one day. She told me not to worry no matter what happened that she was ok. I always remembered that.

Painful. Reminds me of my mother when she was young doing the dishes looking out the window in silence. She almost always did the dishes although we kids help when it's our turn to clean the dishes.
She impressed upon me a very peaceful image that I dared not ask her if I could help. Looking back now I can't help thinking that she was in fact meditating, doing the dishes was her moment in peace, all to herself. I admire her for that. I miss her.

Like. A loving poem.

Thanks for liking Brod.

Sadly my mom's last few years were not enjoyable. But what I will always remember was her zest for life, before dementia set in. Actually, she was bigger than life, a saint and a doer. And she always showed how much she loved all twelve of us. Even one as unlikeable as me LOL
