“Wondering Memories, Vanishing Memories. Where do they summer?”
“Ma, I want to stay home today”, She had said,
Her mother was both surprised and rejoiced.
“Why would you rather stay home?”, questioned her conscience,
The daughter, was never so hesitant in her silence.
“My dear daughter, reply at once, who let my princess down?”
Dripping tears filled her eyes, as she adjusted her crown.
Her mother never raised her to be a coward,
She regained her smile, as her mother hovered.
“I promised I would take my mother for dinner”,
“Oh, did you. Why?, I don’t seem to remember”.
“Happy Birthday mother”, the daughter had finally wished,
Just as Alzheimer’s wondered, where her memory vanished.
