A journey in time with Alzheimer's

NIGHTLY WAIL

Incognito …NOT I say
Lady Blue …QUIET …NO WAY
She roams …by evenings light
Her child’s  gone …out of sight
Open the door …he’s crying for me
Obsessing …she wails  …innocently
The child she longs for …cannot be
A family man …grown …obviously
In her mind …he’s not able
To fend for self …beyond her table
Trying to comfort …no avail
So continues …her nightly wail!
