A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Files Askew

Your filing system is a mess
It’s backwards… up side down
Normal   is   A to Z
It’s twisted all around.

Because I know some history
Of where your heart has been
I would re-file it
If I could just get in.

I’d take a short cut through the web
The twisted parts in time
And bring the current memories
Up front in your mind.

Seems short-term memories
Are battling…then gone
I could fix that…..
Oops..here comes a song.

A  respite time…I see
Your heart is over flowing
Happy words and thoughts
A lucid time?  Hard knowing!

Files askew…can’t undo
Just reaching for a star
And wishing we could change
Where you think you are.
