Fading

He was an avid reader
At least a book a week
Now I see him struggle
With what the words mean
He used to program computers
Now he can’t even turn one on
He can answer a land line phone
But his cell phone is a mystery
Slowly life is taking him away from me
One lost memory at a time
I wonder if tonight
He will even know my name
