Do I Know You?
|by Kathy Michael
Hi Grandma, How are you today?
Hello Honey, Do I know you?
Yes Grandma, it's me.
This is how we start each conversation and end it too.
I'm sorry, do I know you?
You used to ask about school.
Now it's, do I know you?
We use to discuss my future plans
or the trips you and gramps would plan.
Now I talk and on your response I can depend.
You were so active and full of joy.
Now you seem sad and angry.
For my visits you were so glad.
Now for the distraction you seem mad.
I too am mad at this disease that has us all so sad.
I'm sorry I disturbed you. I'll be going now.
Excuse me, do I know you?
Isn't it sad?
