A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Calmness Found

Phone call … to Mother today
“Can’t talk long” … she says
She’s awake …in a mood
Happy times, in a positive groove
“got to go …business awaits”
“Tending to stuff …can’t be late”
I’m guessing she’s caring for a friend
Someone  … who  needs a smile
She holds their hand and sits awhile
Neither understands confusion  around
But together …calmness …found.
