A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Remnants

Lights … flash … cross your mind
Memories … whispers … of time
A brief …moment … a thought
Then … it’s gone … for naught
You grasp a word … heave a sigh
Heart’s racing … curious … why
Remnants … colors ‘n shapes
Alzheimer’s stealing … words escape.

    from my own experience and without Alzheimers, but with a bit of age , I know just how frustrating it is when you know a word, its on the tip of your tongue but the word does not come into brain. I often describe to my husband what I am talking about, and I know which letter it begins with, but the word itself will not appear.
    In the end we get there but to lose control of one’s thoughts must be devastating
