A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Revelation … Flowers

We give flowers to loved ones on Valentines Day, Mother planted flowers during her life time, to renew memories of loved ones, not so different a concept.

Alzheimer's Trail

Beautiful flowers … planted … each year
Colors… hues … lovingly … held dear
Passionately … cared for … watered and fed
Thousands of hours … to earth … you did wed
I took … this for granted … who you were
Today nonchalantly … pretty flowers … a cure
Planting pretty flowers … kept loneliness away
Tender age you left home … forever and a day
A hope of happiness … wrapped your heart
Left … family and friends … security … depart
Some sad days … some happy … heart stored away
Planting pretty flowers … kept loneliness … at bay
A revelation … not guessed … thru the years
A beautiful sentiment … brought me to tears
You gave your lonely heart … bouquets
Reminders … loved ones … miles away.
