A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Pride And Dignity

You are selfish like a child
Attention is your middle name
It haunts me why this is so
I gotta let this go.

You need to have that attention
For your safety and my piece of mind
You keep my hands  tied, I struggle free
To save your pride, and dignity.

Pride is something that ‘s  hurtful to others
To  always to have your own way
But I see reluctance on your part
Or  I’m  hopeful  for a better day.

Hard to tell, with tears in my eyes
Why you can’t let  things go
Let’s meet  half way and happy be
But there’s that pride and dignity.
