A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Wall Of Faces

Voices … trip your memory
You’ve misplaced …a   face
To the wall  …of pictures
A memory … to replace
Sometimes  …they … last
Sometimes …  fade away
Your … wall of pictures
Help … memories …  stay.

Mother’s wall of pictures  has been helpful when she draws blanks remembering people and faces.  Usually she sees the picture and knows who she’s talked to on the phone.     We are all fading to some degree from her memory.  If I say  the full name (first, middle, last) of her kids, she smiles, but I’m afraid Alzheimer’s is swallowing us up!
