A Balancing Act

Today I called you
To wish you a Happy Father’s Day,
Tell you I love you,
Explain why I felt I
Couldn’t celebrate you
Because of
The Conversation on
Mother’s Day.
Tears rolled down my face
Because the price of
This balancing act between
Alzheimer’s and our family
Has been great.
You alleviated my guilt
When you said you understood
That celebrating both
Mother and Father
Next weekend was a
Smart idea.
