A journey in time with Alzheimer's

The Circle Of Life

You’re as helpful as a child
You are willing to do
My fear is you’ll get hurt
I’m afraid for you.

I pull the knobs off the stove
Take plugs out of the walls
Night lights in rooms and halls
Come quickly when you call.

Wear your non-skid shoes
No socks on bare floors please
Your coat and gloves, take along
When temperatures drop the degrees.

Good Grief…listen to me
I’ve heard it …long ago
As a child… you cared for me
I felt safe…I remember…I know.

So, we’re in the circle of life
At the end of our beginning
A challenge, to say the least
But Mother…I believe we’re winning!
