Once-busy days covered concerns of others:
Husband, children, home and job.
Today those are not the concerns.
Now the busy days are personal concerns
Of personal health — did I take my pills?
Of routine tasks that once came easily
But now? Did I remember to pay the bill? To mail the letter?
Do I have enough time? Where did I put it?
The busy now centers on me instead of they.
I've become the child I'm caring for.
