Submitted to SiS’s Daily Haiku Challenge: http://pendownmythought.blogspot.com/p/haiku-challenge.html  Today’s theme (February 3) is Mother.

I Will Never Forget

my aged mother
does not know what day it is
never forgets me

The title is drawn from the biblical book of Isaiah in which God’s love is described as that of a parent: “I will never forget you, my people. I have carved you in the palm of my hand. I will never forget you, I will not leave you orphaned, I will never forget my own.” (loose translation)

    when my mom passed she was in mid stage Alzheimer’s it hurts when a parent doesn’t remember you, I am glad yours has not forgotten you.

    • As a nurse, I’ve seen the pain that that causes, over and over. God bless you. I’ve always believed that they do know but it’s like they are prisoners in their own bodies. So sorry for you, Amanda.
