A Catafalque for Ann
Publisher: Self Publishing Partnership
The slow decline and death of a partner from dementia is traumatic. The burden of care over those last few years increases steadily. When death comes it is, surprisingly, a huge shock, even though long anticipated.
This collection of poems charts that journey into darkness, until the beginnings of healing appear. It is a catalogue of the progress of illness, death and the subsequence inevitable grief.
To the many men and women who have suffered the loss of a partner, the poems will strike a chord and help them to understand that they are not alone.
