Visiting Charlie

Charlie (87) and Gerry (92) on their wedding day.

Charlie (87) and Gerry (92) on their wedding day at Beaumont Nursing Home.

I stopped by the nursing home
to have a cup of coffee
and visit with a friend.

There was a lot of wheel chair traffic
because it was dinner time.

One poor soul had stalled
in the middle lane

and there was old Charlie
giving her a push
toward the dining room
with his own chair
from behind.

Charlie has strong arms
because he has no legs.

It’s not like he saved a life
or anything

still, it seemed a nice snapshot
to take before it got away

in case someone who sees it

has lost something more important
than legs
