Grandmas’s table silver and silver ware, she has is displayed in a cubbord with glass , all in there and some even double. All with a story of their own. She always rambles about the what and when of every piece. I don’t know if all is true. It’s her life in silver so to say. She is getting older and a now has beginning stages of Alzheimer’s. But her silver ware is still important and she doesn’t harm anyone when she wants to polish it for the third time. I hope she doesn’t know because what she doesn’t know wont hurt her. And us ohhh well we just look at the silverware and remember.
As a little girl, my Mother read fairy tales to me.
When I was sitting on her knee,
she used to sing and play with me.
She loved to laugh.
She loved to be
beside me come what may.
But many years ago God came
and took her speech away.
One day while I was sitting
all alone within my thought
my Mother came to me and said:
"Take this that I have brought."
"Mom, forks, and knives
are merely used for food or children's play."
At first, I thought to tell her that
and take them back that way.
Whenever she gets lost from me,
I feel tremendous gloom.
But I cannot commit her
or lock her in her room.
She cared for me
when I was not able to care for myself;
and I will do the same for her
with the lifetime I have left.
Then I smiled and thanked her
for bringing silverware to me.
It's just that I was near-sighted
without the eyes to see.
"I thank you, Mom,"
I smiled at her and took them back again.
"In all my life
you've always been
and my best friend.
