What is love?


What is love?

“Who are you?
What you want?
Why in my bed? ”
At ninety, mother said.

“Oh mother, this is me
Your third son, ”

“Do not lie.”

Alzheimer, dementia

“The best of Valentines
I got gift, the best one.
Once again she came home.”

Gary said and went on
You could feel his cry.

“Seventy five I am, she
Seventy three
I wash her and feed her.
She would do same for me.”
This came on CBC.

My heart fell
Lips opened with question
“What is love? ”

Like old wine
The best love
Sure grows with the time.

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
