Not Knowing

Her mind is hard, her thoughts are thin
Each day she’s a bit more lost
Simple recall, a happy win
Tries hard, but wires are crossed

Her loving heart’s what pulled me near
So many years ago
Now her love’s given way to fear
She’s lost her happy glow

She grew up poor, hard working life
Long hours and family too
A loving mother and a wife
Her only thoughts for you

Her kids have grown and moved away
Caregivers now by her side
Nothing for granted, not one day
Her family filled with pride

Some days she fades into the night
Some times she sleeps all day
They fight to keep her body right
She’s treated in a loving way

Her mind is hard, her thoughts are thin
Each day she’s a bit more lost
Simple recall, a happy win
Tries hard, but wires are crossed
