For Mom - after a first visit to Academy Point

With a command view
Of the Mystic Harbor
End of life is a time of life
With an idiom all its own
As the fire banks lower
It shows us how to re-calibrate hope
Downward moment to moment
Taking comfort in the ebb and flow
Of the Mystic River itself

It's all assisted living
From the midwife's first slap
To our dying embrace
The passions we lay claim to
As our own most assuredly
Are merely borrowed from
Some ulterior place
All the closer to which
You now reside
