She Was There (Inspired by an Alzheimer Patient)

She was there.

She was there in the silence;

She was there in the stillness;

She was there in the tiny hint

Of a smile at dinner time.

She was there.

In a look, in a flash,

In a twinkle in her eyes,

In the warmth of her skin and her breath.

She was there, alive, loving, present,

In a different way, yet her usual way.

Words were not needed.

A whole life of love and laughter

And confidences shared,

Spoke for both of us

When we came together.

A wealth of little moments and birthday cakes,

And Christmas turkeys and summer breaks.

They all were there with her.

She was not gone. Not then, not now.

She was there, with me, and within me,

As she is today. By my side. Always.
