This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

Subtle Changes....

I see the subtle changes
Words spoken in slower tones
At times confused and faltering
words and names seemingly unknowns

Changes in your rituals
The details you always use to keep
Seem to belong to another
You're sinking into the deep...

You use to be so easy to live with
Only impatient waiting for traffic and lines
Now, irritation is your daily mood
And I'm the only one seeing the signs.

Hey Donna!
I'm sorry. I hope that is not from a current situation.

Donna Volkenannt said...

Glad to see you are blogging again. Your poem is a lovely tribute.

This poem is touching Donna, and it tells some of those signs well.

Hi Donna, so many can relate, but often we sit quietly in denial, hoping we're wrong. Blessings.
