Silence of My Mother's Eyes

Dull from age even her eyes can no longer tell a story, Alzheimer’s disease silenced her mind - I’m so sorry.
Written August 11, 2012 For Black Eyed Susan's contest "Silence" Placed 2nd in contest

    Wow... a compelling write indeed, that tells a sad story. I can relate as my mother had alzheimer's disease for years and when it got worse, that dull stare was scary, not knowing what was going on in her sweet mind. I am saddened by this reminder. I loved her so. A good write, however. Congrats on a well deserved win. One love. Joy Wells
