A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Bittersweet

Her eyes glued … french fries across the room
Wanting so much … taste ‘n touch she’s begs for just a fry
The owner tells her … ask nice … she stammers once … twice
Directed  to another … gives her an empty …cup
Finally … her cup filled  …goes back …sits in her seat
Quickly devours …the delicious treat
A child’s thank you …whispered …bittersweet!

I was visiting with Mother and watched this scene played out …brought tears to my eyes …how fragile we are as humans.  I don’t know what was wrong with this woman …she touched my heart.
