A QUOTE FROM THE SILENT ONE , "Love in adversity, becomes stronger, more passionate and sacred" One moment they were dancing iin the dawning light of morning and the next their hearts were dimmed, by life's bitter uncoring he was beginning to forget the little things like tiny specks of dust and as his thoughts turned to a mindfield, Dementia did persist At the nursing home he much obliged for life at home was scary God knows she tried but life got unpredictable and oh so weary and as she hung to all the memories of their one special love, she recalled their life together as one, like two turtle doves Soon, the good Lord will usher him home with a sweet confide and as she learns to live without may God endear her to his side One day at a time Suzanne, his Love will co-exist upon your face and nothing on this livng earth can take away dissolve or erase, the love you once had and will have again, one day in Paradise.
P.S. My neighbor John only has a few more days to live and my heart goes out to his loving partner Suzanne, please include them in your prayers, thanks. xo

I know well enough what dementia means. I never forget her last loving look mixed with fear. Now she's in peace. A lovely poem worthy of one of the best poets on the soup. Hugs
