I Visited My Friend Today - Poem by Shalom Freedman

He is not the same person
His enthusiasm his love of life
His non- stop going and doing
Are all gone-

He is subdued
Restricted in diet
Unable to enjoy his favorite foods
In some discomfort from his latest fall
And broken arm
Not happy
As he once always seemed to be-

I visited my friend today
And understood what
He understands too
He will never be himself again.
