Once-busy Days

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.
