Voices on the Wind Voices on Waiting
Still Here by Andrea Williams Reed Itís been years since I have had any personal contact with her. She is far away, isolated since I was first informed About her having Parkinsonís I first lost her, To bitterness and regret, Second denial of illness Then illness itself Set its own barriers She sits, strokes kitty, Listens to news on TV, Makes phone calls To relations Reminding them She is still here.
