What It's Like: A Personal Story of Suffering - Memories

By Janice Veldman
Share a memory, Grandma
Her family loved to reminisce
Grandma’s were the best
Those that loved her sat around her
Eagerly waiting to hear what was to be said.
She took her worn tissue paper, fragile in itself
A lingering scent of age
Carefully unfolding the paper
The memory was nearly unwrapped.

Just pick anyone, someone said


What is wrong?
The wrapping is empty
No more memories to share
They were gone

She had shared them all.
