Family Member

Her beautiful brown skin turned yellow
As her personality dissipated
She broke out into a familiar chorus
“Mommy, Please!”
And threw her hands in the air for something only she could see
Delirium had been set in
Crying within, her son struggled in
He and his sister caressed her forehead at the bedside
An avalanche of tears
A thanksgiving break like any other
Filled with traditional food and time spent with my mother
And the usual hospice visit to watch the death of another
