A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Compassion … You

He shuffles  around … head hanging down
No telling thoughts he wears with a frown
No  words …  as you pass in the hall
You’re  concerned … he’s not talking at all
It’s okay Mom, his business, not yours
Must leave him alone … be reassured
He is where he is …  to you it’s absurd
Doesn’t want to be … sad  … you say
As you turn … giving smiles away
You worry ‘n fret … ponder … stew
Compassion …empathy … you.
