WE SHOULD BE ABOVE THIS !

I THINK OF MY LIFE, WHEN I WAS YOUNGER...
HOW MUCH FUN IT WAS, ALL THE FRIENDS.

TRIPS TO THE CARIBBEAN. HAVING A SKI HOUSE IN THE WINTER.
IN THE SUMMER A HOUSE BY THE LAKE SACANDAGA IN NEW YORK.
OR ON THE BEACH IN NEW JERSEY.

FINDING SOMEONE YOU LOVE WHO LOVES YOU BACK.
GET MARRIED, HAVE TWO BEAUTIFUL BOYS.
MAKE A GREAT LIFE FOR YOURSELF.

AND THROUGH IT ALL MY PARENTS WORRYING EVERY
NIGHT AND DAY. I KNOW THIS NOW HAVING MY OWN KIDS.

                     47 YEARS GO BY.

MY MOM PASSED IN 2007 ( MISS HER BIG TIME )
NOW I GO VISIT MY DAD AT A HOUSE WHERE STRANGERS TAKE
OF HIM. BECAUSE I CAN'T.

I GO AND SEE HIM AND ALL THE ELDERLY INMATES.
THEY STARE INTO SPACE,YOU ASK HOW ARE YOU DOING.
AND THEY SAY GOOD. BUT YOU KNOW IF THEY WERE YOUNGER
THEY WOULD GET UP AND LEAVE!

YOU CAN TELL HOW SAD THEY ALL ARE .
SOMETIMES THEY ASK " WHEN CAN I LEAVE ? AND I SAY
WHERE DO YOU WANT TO GO AND MY FATHER
JUST SHUTS DOWN HE STARES INTO SPACE.

HOW DID THIS HAPPEN TO MY DAD. HE WAS SO STRONG!
NOW HE'S JUST AN OLD MAN IN A STRANGE HOUSE.

CANT SOMETHING BE DONE ? I KNOW SOMETIMES YOU JUST CANT
TAKE CARE OF YOUR PARENTS BECAUSE THEIR HEALTH IS POOR,
BUT IT'S PAINFUL.

HOW DO WE ABANDONED THEM ?
KNOWING WE WILL BE IN THEIR HELL SOON OURSELVES!

WE SERIOUSLY HAVE TO RISE ABOVE US AND DO MORE!!!!!!!!
