His dear wife now had Alzheimers,
her mind in a bad way;
He placed her in a care home, but
he saw her every day.
He brought her favorite roses
and a Persian cat to touch;
He'd sing to her and brush her hair,
"I love you ~ oh, so much!"
Sometimes he'd read her stories
or explain things on TV,
He longed to hear her call his name
but knew it couldn't be.
One day a patient watched them ~
how he'd gently hold her hand,
The patient, filled with wonderment, said
"I don't understand...
"She doesn't even know you, sir,
you might as well be dead!"
"I guess that's true ," he answered,
"Ah, but I know her," he said.
Love bears all things,
believes all things,
hopes all things,
endures all things.
Love never ends..."
(I Corinthians 13:7 RSV)
