Once We Were II

Cherished lovers ...
only in a magical mesmerizing moment
coloring passion remembered.
Passion ... someone's perfume perhaps or,
a desire for chocolate fudged to ebony.
Sweethearts embrace
held in pre-alzheimer snapses ... cuddling.
Such a pity, or perhaps ...
a blessing?  Why swoon or sway in the silence?
Just rest in a sweetness
of simmered leftovers
embracing this soul that knows
mountaintop peaks,
starbursts of ectasy
forever and always.

    When Alzheimer's takes someone's present awareness away, we cling to the memories of "simmered leftovers," those "starbursts of ecstasy" that made them so beloved to us. Such a sad but beautifully penned poem, Sue! Love, Carolyn
