living alone
in the blizzard
of forgetfulness …
snowflakes obscure the world
outside the nursing home

Yes. The memory is being eaten up by the fog of old age- - dementia, Alzheimer's pain meds- -and all that is left of like is a gray existence in a gray room in a last stop on the journey nursing home, You have a sure grasp on words and paint a picture laden with a quiet but powerful emotion. Definitely a 10++++++++++ poem.
