    Sometimes we forget, that elderly people are taking for granted because of their age. We often think because of their age, that they are not capable of knowing when they are pushed aside, because we just don't have the time. Have you ever taken a moment, and imagine, what would it be like to be them.This piece was written for someone I use to know, If I only knew then, what I can only imagine now

    Before it's to late, put yourself in their place
    Take a moment and imagine their reality now,

    Can you imagine?

    Seeing yourself change year after year
    Once young, beautiful, vibrant & full of life
    Now old fragile, wasting away & waiting for life to end

    Can you imagine being me?

    Just imagine
    Once keen, intelligent, independent & proud
    Now forgetful, mindless, dependent & strip of all dignity

    Can you imagine being me?

    Now imagine me, your mother,
    When you were young & needed me

    Imagine me
    Feeding you
    Bathing you
    Changing you diapers
    Combing your hair
    Comforting you when you were sick
    Loving you unconditionally
    For free

    Imagine me, your mother

    Being your best friend, when you were to shy to make friends
    Singing silly song to make you laugh when you were sad
    Hugging & Kissing your boo boo’s to help ease your pain
    Sacrificing all that I had, to ensure your happiness,

    You were never a burden to me. You were my child
    & I Loved You

    Can you imagine being me, loving you?

    Now imagine, my child,
    Me needing YOU

    Time has change,
    The unexpected has happen

    I
    Your mother is once again young
    Not youthful, just young


    Imagine me needing you to feed me, because I am getting frail & weak

    Me needing you to bath me, without the rubber gloves, so I can feel a warm caring touch

    Me needing you to help change my diapers, & not make me feel embarrass & ashamed

    Me needing you to comb my matted hair, because my hands are now arthritic

    Me needing you to comfort me, when I become scare of dying
    because I still want to live

    Me needing you to love me unconditional
    For free


    Imagine you my child, being my best friend, because everyone has forsaken me

    Imagine you making me smile again, by singing to me that silly song

    Imagine you hugging & kissing me, just because,
    I am still human

    Imagine YOU, sacrificing just a corner of your life to show me that I am not worthless & that I am still somebody

    I NEVER WANTED or MEANT TO BE A BURDEN YOU, YOU ARE MY CHILD
    &
    I LOVE YOU

    IMAGINE BEING ME

    Scared, waiting for the moment, when being me, become just a memory, that I will no longer be able to remember

    Can you imagine that?

    Can you imagine being passed back & forth, like used clothing, being pass down from one person to the other

    Imagine no one really wanting them, because they are old, used & worn out, just useless

    Now can you imagine being me?

    Imagine those same clothes being given to a homeless person, & them saying thank you,

    because to them old as they me be, they are priceless to someone that needs them

    Can you imagine being me?

    Being priceless
    To you?
