Poetry by Walt Page: The Tennessee Poet
A bell was tolling
I knew not why
People were laughing
Looking my way
Perhaps the time had come
But I wondered
The time for what
I kept on walking
No idea where I was
Or where I was going
The tolling of the bell got louder
I was in front of a church
And I was still in my bathrobe
I was lost
I was alone
And I couldn’t remember my name

Thank you so much Dorinda 🙂 Dementia and Alzheimers are poignant subjects. :)<3
Yes, and sadly so. Still hoping for the day we no longer see this horrible disease.
I agree 😊💛
