A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Short Leave

I leave you for a short while
You forget why I have gone
You express concern and want to know
If there is something wrong.

You’re told I will be back soon
No reason to despair
But even though  you’re safe and sound
You worry I’m not there.

Why should you have such worry
Why should you have such grief
No comforting seems to help
Bring about relief.

Upon return, I find you napping
Worries far away
Short term memory loss
Has been a friend today.
