Helping an aged friend

Watching him move more


His peculiar habits

Manifested thru’ life.

We all have adapted to


Cared for a friend and

His caretakers:

O – for driving errands

N – for intensive care

And organizing her daughter


Who saved MrT for many


Having to call for instant

Medical help.

So the poet recalls his

Immediate emergency


Calling an ambulance

When his friend was

Stranded during an

Health attack

At Vienna’s central station

And this time it was also

Touch and go                                                                                       

As sudden attacks of one’s

Own health

Are most serious matters.

Reflecting on his own life

The poet muses about his

Near-death experiences

On the long winding road

He was in good luck

Of getting away


Watching his friend closely.
