Morning Medication

A Lady with dementia needs her morning medication

I made my way, with breakfast tray without much hesitation

A cup of tea, a piece of toast one tablet to be swallowed

There was a kind of sameness as the conversation followed 

She asks me every morning why she needs this medication,

I answer her the same each day despite procrastination

"To keep you young and pretty" I assured her it was true

She smiles at me whilst saying "well! You’d better give me two".
