He kept saying to me – I don’t have a friend-
No one but me on whom he could depend.
For at least 3 years he hasn’t had a buddy to talk-
And he missed those with whom he use to walk.
Some faded away as his disease progressed-
Others found there home in heaven where they did rest.
He did not fit with new friends, they were not his speed-
He said & did things differently & him they did not need.
Now at memory care – a few days he goes-
When I pick him up – he truly glows!
“I like these people they are really nice”- says he-
How ’bout we build a house close to the vicinity?!
He has someone to talk to who listens to his tales-
A kind listener who puts wind in his sails!
He will go for 5 days while I unload our ol’ condo – you see-
Our condo in Florida – used to be his favorite place to be-
Now he cannot remember the place he loved the best-
We are now near family & I can take a rest!
Our lives are changing – I pray he does OK-
I thank the Lord for His timing – it is Him we obey!
