His breath is sour from last nights wine, his teeth the colour of his
cigaretted fingers and the 3 day growth on his chin looks like paddy
McGinties goat. He looks at his wife through his far away eyes while she
washes him with a sponge.  He tries to smile, but coughs out phlegm, and
she wipes his mouth and her eyes.

The window is laced with curtain; the walls are photographed with
children playing in gardens and tea served under the tree. She quilted
the cover two decades ago and knitted his favourite green cap; he still
wears it sitting in bed.

The bed lamp is soft on the pink daisies, the doilies crotched by hand,
and music plays softly from an old radio, which they still refer to as the
wireless. The grandkids come when they have to, like birthdays and
Christmas Eve, but on the drive home they always complain, that
Grandma’s house smells of mildew and mothballs.  A deal was done and
the promise was kept, so ice-cream was bought as reward.

She looks down at his crossword and notes the noughts and crosses and
just like yesterday and yesterweek she tells him he got them all right. He
seems pleased. She says she’ll go and put the kettle on and leaves the
room too swiftly.

She used to read his tea-leaves; he always believed that she could, but
mostly because it was always a fortune of better times ahead. She looks
down in the cup, no leaves today, just a soggy bit of biscuit floating in the
dregs. She used to use fine china and set up the table for tea, often with
a sponge cake, silver spoons and linen serviette. When times were
tough, she made pikelets and drizzled a little golden syrup on top or if
visitors came she would extend herself and made scones with butter and
jam.

Through the window she sees the paper-bark tree and remembers him
cutting its branches, but now it just reminds her of his paper thin skin,
she thinks of the colours of autumn, leaves falling down, natures cycles –
of death and dying. The sadness is haunting and she is reminded once
more of borrowed time and everything having its season.

As newly weds they used to joke about getting old together and for what
seems like a strange idea now they would romanticize it as a right or
privilege.

From his room she hears the familiar song,  I’ll Give You a Daisy a Day,
she softly hums and closes her eyes and watches herself dance by; he in
his hat and his best Sunday suit and she in a white cotton frock.

He remembers the first time he met her, he remembers the first thing she
said,
He remembers the first time he held her, and the night that she came to
his bed.
He remembers her sweet way of saying, honey has something gone
wrong
He remembers the fun and the teasing, and the reason he wrote her this
song
I'll give you a daisy a day dear, I'll give you a daisy a day
I'll love you until the rivers run still, and the four winds we know blow away
(Lyrics by Jed Strunk)
