The Visit


Is a beautiful voice I hear

Coming from the darkness

Said my brother incoherentyl

who is half blind

Upon my vist 

To the nursing home

He resides within 

Referring to the voice

Of the beautiful 

Activities Director.


There I prayed

The Dreams of my future

Will not be as the nightmare

I witnessed before my eyes.

I visited my uncle last year in his assisted living apartment. He is near blind and has a keen ear, but welcomed me heartily and walked me out to my car after we talked. He will be 101 this December. We all have different ways of going out. Some do it better than others.
