Understanding ~ a Poem

Scouring the sands
for some sense
of dignity.

What’s left at an old, old age
where memory fails
more than it remembers?

Fear sensed, fear felt.

It’s empathy
that stirs patience and
reiteration, reminding and rewording.

Grace rises, grace succumbs.

Trust ensues
where safety lies.

Bitterness with ego,
bitterness with distrust.

~ I wrote and posted this poem to my blog, Poetically Enhanced Entropy, in June, 2015.

Hmmmm. Frustrating. Maddening. Sad. I wonder, if as a writer and a thinker and a dabbler, you’ll find something rewarding and enlightening about the Alzheimer experience. Suspect you will. How do I reach your blog? --Jim
