It happened slowly day by day
Mama began to drift away
Her gaze once sensual and alluring
Became a transfixed stare
Lucid moments were very rare

Soiled undergarments she
Would hide in strange places
She even hid her makeup
In flower vases

You should have seen the
Look upon her face
The day the doctor told her
Her mind was being erased

Mama shuffled out the front door
Down the front steps she swayed
Under the big red maple
Is where she stayed

Mama waited for the ice cream truck
To bring the special of the day
Before the angels came
To take her away
