A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Barbara

When Meta becomes …Barbara
You’re obviously …traveling
Another time … not …now
It’s disheartening …and HOW!

Today you called ME …Barbara
A moment’s …hesitation
I had a crooked smile
Where’s your destination!

Time will come …someday
We’ll all be gone away
So I’m taking note
Crying …Alzheimer’s AWAY!

Mother had a sister named Barbara. Perhaps she’s thinking of her when my sister Meta becomes Barbara in conversation. Now me! Oh dear …that’s Alzheimer’s!
