    Default Mother (CTG)

    Mother

    My mother lies sedated in hospice care and I can't make out what she's saying. Later she sleeps soundly and I don't disturb her. The room is quiet with subdued lighting and rain spatters on the window. What is she thinking about? Past times in Liverpool perhaps... the war when she met my father, a physiotherapist with the Royal Air Force. She served in the ATS, helped monitor the German bombers coming to rain bombs on the docks of Merseyside. The drone of the raiders' Heinkels.

    Nice sentiment Chris, my mum had a similar role in the war.

    Thanks,

    Hello Mart, Dazza, Naked Lilac and Spike

    Thank you each for your kind comments and thoughts. I appreciate the best wishes at this difficult time. I am an only child so it makes the burden even greater.
