The long goodbye.

I had to share this and note it down.

I care for my father who has Alzheimers.

I watch, I listen.
I lose my father within the house.
My father loses himself within the house.

He finds it hard to stay within the moment,
He finds it hard to stay in bed, in the house, in the shower…

and then there are moments just like before…he is sitting looking out the window into the garden and says ‘I think butterflies pass through the same time each day’.
