YOUR MOM CALLED

Your mom called…
She’s in the hospital
I heard it so many times…
That followed many years
Of similar news about my dad…
Getting old, it seems, is
Hazardous to your health…
All we can hope is…
What afflicted them
Won’t get us…
Seems so grim

      And not getting old is worse and so sad. We do the best we can. What else is there?

        Like my sister says, Life sucks and if your lucky, it sucks for a really long time.

        It doesn’t have to, but it does a lot.

    My grandmother has dementia. I miss who she used to be when we were kids. I am happy to be able to say I have my grandma.

      It will require a lot of patience on your part, but you’ll feel better at the end.
