When my wife and our Son
went to lunch with me
and there was much enjoyment;
it's how it should be.
Later the statement and question,
she makes to me.
"Joe is a nice man,
does he have any parents?"
I had expected this question
for many a long time,
so I told her the answer,
"He's your Son and mine."
She said, "Really?" back to me.
My wife wasn't teasing,
as I could plainly see.
A rush of emotion, overpowered
my feelings, bothered my stead,
like a sharp, pointy boot,
straight to my head.
There is pain every where
we now go.,
as more memory is lost
during this insidious show.

So sad to forget what was one of her most gratifying achievements - at least she recognizes he turned out well.

I agree. It was painful for me to hear but I understood it was inevitable. A matter of when.
