Here I sit,
in early morning hour,
trying to write words,
for a life gone sour.
Why do things
go wrong for someone good?
I sit and ponder about my wife's
last 10 years, as I should.
Diagnosed with Lung Cancer
in the last part of 2013,
successful treatment, in 2014.
Now she is deemed clean.
No one will say she is cancer free.
They test every year. "In remission."
The words I hear bother me. Then
Early onset dementia. A new Mission.
So I sit here. She is in Memory Care,
with a diagnosis of Dementia-Alzheimer.
What did she do to deserve
ten years of declining health for her?
