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 Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
