Ageing parents may loose their freedom, their homes and their possessions. Encourage them to adapt to their altered lives.

Just a Room

A villa in her childhood
A Dalmatian was her friend
Born an only child
She vowed to end this trend

A bungalow with her parents
Hitlerís bombs on the lawn,
on her glasshouse too!
Lucky escapes,not forlorn

A Manse to raise the family
Village, town and city
Three children, six dogs
Some pretty, yes very pretty!

A flat in widowhood
Good views, aches and pains
Falls on the carpet
Everywhere, blood stains

But now Just a Room.
A high ceiling, but still a view
Meals provided. A last resort.
Just a Room, old, but so new.

Just A Room

Touching, well written ! The poem captures the essence of life . Its that way for so many as they reach their golden years. Their lives and treasures are held with in the "Room". Its a sad reality which many face..........M

A touching piece of writing here, Miller. Yes, my own parents have gone down this road. Such is this thing called aging...'tis had to bear sometimes. But, what can we do? Yes, touching indeed!
God Bless!
Reviewed by richard cederberg 5/20/2006
More than just a room - an extension of the soul that reflects time in small pieces. A retrospective of ones fleeting moments. There is a deep melancholy in this piece laced with hope that someday these things can be changed.
