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.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
