LIFE IS A CHANGEABLE THING, by Dora Silvers
Faye, my friend of 35 years, is in a home for Dementia. It is very heartbreaking, how she has changed in the last year. Faye was an excellent cook and loved making lunches and dinners at our Temple. Faye has traveled to many countries and collected souvenir spoons. We went shopping together and the four of us went to the movies and theater together.
Faye tuned to a completely different person. Her quiet personality changed completely. Her husband had to call 911; she was put into the Hospital. Now, she will be going to a facility in Anaheim. Her husband Joe is selling their lovely two story home, he will be moving into an apartment. It breaks my heart to know this is really happening.
Joe is going through a changing lifestyle. They were married for over 60 years. I was thinking that "Life is not fair". I wrote this poem for Joe.
AFTER THE CLOUDS, THE SUNSHINE.
AFTER THE WINTER, THE SPRING
LIFE IS A CHANGEABLE THING
AFTER THE NIGHT, THE MORNING
THEN ALL DARKNESS CEASES
AFTER LIFE'S CARES AND SORROWS
THE COMFORT AND SWEETNESS OF PEACE.
Bless you, Joe for being such a caring husband.
