Parkinsons Avenue
by Kathryn E. Milligan

It begins with
The smaller things

To forget a word here
Lose something there

But soon the world
Becomes somewhat of a blur

She smiles and nods
The portrait of a Lady
Like she knows what's going on

But when it's time to speak her piece she stumbles over the words
The phrases are lost

She can only say No
Or simply start over with Let's see

We smile reassuringly
Laugh it off
We forget things too

But we know when to eat dinner
We can still drive our cars

We all reach a point
When all we have
Is our mind and the memories

Who can remind you of them
If they've already gone?

My biggest fear is that
She will forget
She has forgotten

And we all become
A blur
Of walking memories
