Not having Power of Attorney, has now kept sleep from me for days Because of my moms so called friend, and all her evil ways She put my mom into an elderly facility without even my consent Moved out of my moms house that she rented, for a measly $300. rent She said my mom gave her the house, while she revised her will one day When I asked my mom this three different times, she always said "no way" Being a friend of my moms for so many years, I didn't think I needed to worry "We're taking good care of her don't worry," was always the same old story Don't worry we're taking good care of her, and everything is going just fine Little did I know she was thinking, "Ha-ha one day this will all be mine" Now she is talking about a restraining order, to keep me from seeing my mom As she destroys my moms life savings, like a ticking little time bomb My mom was staying at her daughters, that's supposed to be some kind of nurse But as the months slowly passed, I noticed her memory was getting worse Her daughter took our wedding picture, off the wall in my mothers room So she wouldn't be able to see me, and that only brought her gloom We then had another made, with a heart that said "To the worlds greatest mom" Again that picture was hidden from her, which made my mother begin to sob When she would cry and say, "Where's my son" that was all just part of there plan Making others think I never came to see her, now that was way out of hand Every time I called, after two rings I would always get the answering machine So a message of love to my mother, is what I would always leave But my calls were never returned, and I could never understand why? They probably told her I never called, just to make her always cry How could someone do that? I guess it's all because of greed? I guess their heartless, loveless souls, just do it because it's a need

    A soulful write/read, Dan, I hope all worked out for the best! If this is a 'need' for anyone, it should be instantly prohibited and brought to justice.:( Sadly it's a situation that happens too often. Wishing the best to you and yours, Mikki

    Dan, thanks for visiting - I am temporarily at a "civilized" location and enjoying hi speed I-net for the first time in months. My heart is saddened by your situation and I join the others hoping for a proper resolution and restoration of your rightful place in your mother's life. Btw, I am amazed how you create rhyme especially when writing about such difficulties. Best to you, john

    Dan, my heart is aching for you and your mom. Do whatever you have to do to fight this and if you keep getting the runaround I would go to the media and get your story in the papers and on the news. Will be thinking of you. Hugs.

    Hi Dan - What they are doing to you and your mom is awful. Taking advantage of an elderly person is unforgivable. Hope you and your mom can overcome these circumstances. - Gail

    What this woman and her daughter are doing to your mother is wrong, Dan. Most states now try to provide seniors the support they need to remain at home rather than go to nursing homes. How terrible that they are trying to make your mom think you have forgotten about her. The pain flows strongly in this powerful poem, Dan. And I would be very interested in learning more about your near-death experience and what you saw. Love, Carolyn

    Thank you all for your advice...I'm going to see a lawyer today,and talk to them about it.It's going to be a little tricky thou,because now my mom has been listed as incompatint because of Alzhimers or dementia..Little did I know they were waiting for this stage to begin so they could get the second Dr signiture...And not tell me anything about it! Thanks again to you all..Your prayers are greatly appreciated.

    Hi Dan. Lot of good advice you have got here. It is that I have talked about to you before: It is not allowed to do so!!!! - f.e.f. oxox love Anne-Lise always.

    Oh Dan, yes elder abuse, indeed. I would call the police and report your concerns especially if they are threatening you with a restraining order. I don't know what state your in but this should be reported to your state's abuse hotline and adult protective services will investigate. Also, talk to an attorney who specializes in elder law. Yes, they do exist. Even if you cant afford to retain one, you can usually get some good advice. I worked with the elderly for years and saw this too many times. I'm so sorry you are going through this. Remember, your mom is a vulnerable adult under the law and she has rights. God bless you. You are in my prayers. Rhonda

    Dan, I sent a soup mail before I read your poem. I can hardly understand anyone doing this to another human being! Just horrible and I am ready to do justice. I hope you are able to do something and get this person out of your mother's and your life, she is toxic and destructive. I'm so sorry dear friend, no one deserves this.

    This is a true sign of elder abuse and this friend has built a hedge around your mother to shut you judge would allow this...I am praying for you, Dan...sorry you are enduring this pain. Love, Gwendolen

    Dan, my heart goes out to you. I can't believe a "friend" would do this. How horrible for you. I pray that God will give you the wisdom you need to resolve this situation. I will keep you and your mom in my prayers. God Bless. Love, Kim
