Alzheimers - A grandfather's disease

June 5, 2008
By Isabel Leavitt, Charlotte, NC

Dwindling of mentality
A leisurely painful disease subsiding within the brain
Unable to distinguish amongst fellow loved ones,
acquaintances, friends,
Incurring the wrath of this penetrating malady

Tuning the piano
Embarking on an interminable request
Playing catch with your child
Such a derivative request

To reside residence with your favorite grandson
associating his presence with a bitter sweet melody
An alluring manifestation drifting beyond your gaze
Unknown to the person who had just lain
