Side by Side, Time is Special

?

?

My mother-in- law, a dear friend has an illness that’s hard to bare

She has Alzheimer, lost now and no more that person with flare

Once, she had the glow, warm desire to drive, shop, dancing fun It was busy as she knew the day, time and what to wear in the sun

?

So hard to believe, she changed from vibrant to slow toddler ways

An elderly look appears but she now keeps quiet, just staring days

I feel sad to watch this happening to someone with a huge heart

She doesn’t know what’s going on, our friendship may come apart

?

It’s difficult but I will often visit, our moment is like a soft breeze I’m a babysitter somehow as we happily watch birds in the trees

Later it’s time for goodbye, she leaves to have something to eat

For a few hours, we had fun and being with her is a special treat

?

Although there are many sad changes, she still enjoys bright things, outdoor colours, sounds and mostly the pleasures of teatime, cookies!
