Duffy’s tavern, I hear you say, your voice is cheery and clear
Love to hear you talk and laugh, with loved ones you hold so dear
You are definitely in the moment, you are lucid and speaking clear
Those who are talking to you, are enjoying this sweet cheer.
When the conversation is over, and the call is done
I watch you draw back into self, memories intact? Hopefully one…
The thought surely will tag along and release a happy grin
And bring hours of happiness as it warms you from within.
