A journey in time with Alzheimer's

It Matters

Some … are further along …you see …feel the difference
Some things …trouble you … other things …not so much
You care …how you look … some days …more than others
You need to stand your ground …let someone help …or not
A big deal …I get it …it matters!
So how to make life easier …on this journey
At times is overwhelming …sometimes you appreciate
Little things …done …other times …not so much
Sometimes you refuse to …meet me …half way
No compromise …in sight! On we walk thru time
Alzheimer’s …slowly takes your hand
And you …drop mine!

    My love to your Mom…and for you dear Sheila…May God’s Blessings be showered upon you.


  2. I saw on Facebook today that the Alzheimer’s Association is partnering with Chicken Soup for the Soul and coming out with a book for Alzheimer’s/dementia. You should seriously consider submitting some of your poems to them… I believe you’d stand a very good chance of having them published! https://www.facebook.com/actionalz/posts/10152240307654447
