Do you see that woman in her chair- the chair is labeled with her name and care? Tell her a story, share your memories with her; she will rise in glory. Look at her eyes when you tell her a fairytale or a story about the beach and a sea shell. See her lighten like a thunder in the sky. If you hold her she won´t hardly sigh. Sometimes she sings a song, when the radio plays she sings along and if you clap your hands at the end she will lift her hands like she is the winner of a race. Watch the beauty hidden in her face. If she laughs, look at the way she holds her tummy; it´s just so beautiful to see. You will love to see her laugh- a smile is the most precious thing a person can have. Don´t bother her with questions she doesn´t understand; tell her about the beach, again, and her golden sand. Don´t disagree with what she says; listen to her as she whispers her prayers. Don´t use your hands when you talk ´cuz her eye-sight went for a walk. Don´t talk about her blindness for she is hurt by that; don´t even start it for you surely will regret. Take her to the bathroom, she´s afraid to go alone; her fears override her for she can do it on her own. Tell her to believe in herself and to lose her fear but if something does go wrong tell her you'll stay near. If she´s on the toilet tell her not to cry tears for she will panic out and fall because of those fears. Turn the lights on to make darkness go south, don´t hesitate to raise your voice if you speak. Please do, loud. She can´t always hear you but she sure does feel; she may yell at you but her appreciation is real. Stay with her when she walks she is too afraid to fall but if you stay by her side she will shine her pride and stand tall. Wait, don´t let her go before you´ve reached the end ´cuz at your destination she will reach out and take your hand. She will tell you she loves you if you feel the warmth in her hand you´ll know it´s true. If she asks you what to do, just smile and tell her it's her day off, that she already worked enough. If she asks for her daughter, tell her she´ll be here soon and, while waiting, tell her to count the stars around the moon- she won´t see them by far but she can see the ray of light of the star. If she keeps telling- she is tired, don´t ask her where she´s tired of or why... she will only yell at you or give you a big burden sigh ´cuz you're supposed to know. She worked all her life from 8 am ´til 5. If she yells that she can´t see her drink don´t dare to tell her it´s in her mind, if that is what you think- And don´t forget the red mug, fork and knife, she needs them for her sake to "survive." Ok now... I will let you go. Tell Jeanet I love her and that she is on my mind. don´t forget the rules I told you- especially not them of her being blind. Please take good care for I´m no longer there. Please remind her to smile make her laugh more than once in a while. If she is full of fear whisper my name in her ear. Tell her I´ll visit her soon and while waiting... tell her to count the stars around the moon.
