A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Chickadees

Narrow hallways through the place
We wander … in and out
Mom enjoys looking … smiling
When others peek and shout
I don’t see … my chickadees
She says … with a … frown
Guess she’s looking for her room
Two halls down … around
She started out … strong
Eyeing everything … in sight
Now she’s had … enough
Walk’s finished for tonight
Passing through the doors
Leading to … her place
Her face lights up … it’s Mary
She gives a warm … embrace.
