I saw disease kill my mother slowly,
eating her movement.

No matter how much the death expected,
shock stains the grief.

It made me silly stupid:
I brewed a cup of coffee
and put it in the fridge.

Those around can care resolve.
Even my high tail cat observed
and fussed me her affection.

I know your pain.
Let me care.
