A journey in time with Alzheimer's

A Broken Memory

It’s broken …I said …it’s not …she replied
To me …a microwave … her …memory alive
Had it …years …when husband around
Their …possession …memories abound
Accusations she tossed …escalating  state
I BACKED   OFF  …too much on her plate
Naturally …needs replacing …I said
Leave this house …said …to my dread
Hindsight …she wasn’t mad at me
JUST  … wanting … things
That …could …not …be.

This WHISPER IN TIME  came from my journal written the winter I spent  with Mom at her home in N.Y.  Nov. 2010 to April 2011.    She pined for that microwave, it held memories of what was!
