A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Today’s Matinee

“No more bad feelings” …you say …today’s  matinée
Lucid Lucy’s …in town …wipes tears …away
Lady Blue comes …quickly …sadness …no cheers
Depressing … sullen …darkness …fears
Sees the world differently …suspicious …over bearing
Thinking’s upside down …my strength …fortitude …wearing
Today …I see you Momma … don’t go away
Hard tolerating Blue …day after …day.

  1. Does your mom know she’s someplace different?

      I’m not 100% sure she does. We’ve told her it’s her place and others live there. I think she thinks she’s in an apartment with the nurses and aides as helpers.
