Fountain of Youth

He sits.

Slightly stooped posture

Slow and limited movement

He watches.

Decrease in visual acuity

Diminished peripheral vision

He listens.

Hearing loss

Slowing of thought, memory, and thinking

 

He sits.

Prideful

Back straight, shoulders back

He watches.

Own definition of beautiful

Observing what life offers

He listens.

Laughter echoes

Noise slowly dies off

 

He sits.

Small hands get a hold of his.

He watches.

Small eyes are drawn towards him.

He listens.

“apa”

He is next to me.

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
