RESIDENT, HOME FOR THE AGED poem

by Richard L. Provencher  
6/20/2008 / Poetry


Resident, Home for the Aged

head hanging to one side
limp, lifeless in the chair,
asleep
belt tight across
her belly
couldn't take another fall

it's almost noon and
soon
the r-n-a will come
and wheel her to the table,
gently wake her up,
then feed
and care for her

she'll come alive
eyelids flickering
trembling of lips
loose folds of skin,
quivering

somewhere back there
across well waxed floors
down one hall
and then another,
her room

over to one side
beside the other
beds,
some old pictures
one in particular
on her dusty table,
her children

innocent faces
full, joy and life
looking up at momma
never dreaming one day
she would be old,
and lonely
