Visit with William

He looked at me with sad eyes

Sitting with shoulders slumped

Palms open as if in supplication

Just wanting to understand

They why of it all.

My parents,

Where are they?

Not here I said but far away.

No he responded

They were here this afternoon

Please let me see them.

So it goes

His obsession with family long dead

His mother, sister, brothers,

Longing to see them

Laugh and joke with them

Just to be once more in their presence.

You will only be here for a few more days I said,

We will bring you back home.

Things will get better after you meds are changed

Hopefully bringing you some peace

And freedom from you inner loneliness

From being homesick for your loved ones.

We talked about other things,

As I left

I hugged him told him of my concern and love

Walked to the door to be let out.

As I was leaving I could hear the pounding

His wanting to be free.

No outward tears showing

But my heart was torn

So little can be done to ease suffering

Of those trapped in their mind

In the dream of the past

Thought to be present.
