Measured gurgles perform off key
Accompanied by the sound of uneven breathing.
The nose breathes in--
The mouth breathes out,
Each distrustful of the other
To carry out the necessary task.

Gone are the soft down pillows 
Where sweet dreams gathered.
Now life requires a more upright position.
Her head propped high to let the air in.

A gnarled hand clutches a dinner bell
Whose dulcet tones belie its singular purpose.
One ring, two--but no one comes.
Complaints go unanswered,
And each day in the old house is the same.

    A sad, and rather distressing situation...all too common, it seems. A nicely constructed poem, with good use of language.
