Lois (Alzheimer poem #2)

she held my son
in her lap
when he knew 2 words
& she had forgotten all hers

but they were smiling together
love needs no spoken language

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    short but beautiful and powerful – a grandma’s love shines through with such force as does the love of mum/daughter’s who straddles and links the two generations, a love that speaks even when silent and even when grandma’s memory appears to bre fading. well done!
