New Friends

I hear you breathe,
I see your hair.
Look, you have a new friend,
Now I知 here.

The spark in your eyes,
Just barely a glow.
Look, you have a new friend,
Now I知 here.

The laugh in your voice,
Just barely a whisper.
Look, you have a new friend,
Now I知 here.

The spring in your step,
Just barely a shuffle.
Look, you have a new friend,
Now I知 here.

Of  who you once were,
Is just the shell.
Look, you have a new friend,
Now I知 here.

I want to help,
Take it away.
Look, you have a new friend,
Sorry mom, I can稚 stay,
But I love you anyway.

We've all been there. How we deal with it determines our paths.

Footnote: I managed for the first time in five years to go back to South Africa to visit my family. In late 2005 my mother was admitted to a home for people suffering from Alzheimers'. She is 67 years young.

In March this year, my mother passed away.
I love you mom.

sorry to hear about your loss kitvb...mothers are way beyond special and when they go to the other side it leaves a huge void...my mom went "home" in 1996 and I still miss her a bunch...thankfully she visits me often while I sleep.
