As you sit near, you hear me say,
"Did you forget to wash today?'
Dry the dishes and go to bed.
Put out the cat, you better obey!
I mutter and mumble, don't know
what I say.
Please utter a prayer for me today.
You look at me so feeble with age,
You shake your head and don't know
What to say.
Just touch my hand and share your light,
And then I know I'll be all right.
In my mind as I wander away, I long for
Things of yesterday.
I wrote this poem after visiting a Nursing Home and an
elderly lady rambled on, living in the past. My heart
went out to her so I wrote just what she said.
