A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Heart’s Desire

I have no memory of what you  say, but doubt that it is true
I only know you seem to think the truth is all in you
Your memories collide in time, and ride together there
You think and so it is, keeps me in despair.

I sometimes try to sort it out, and tell you what came first
But that just irritates, and brings confusion at it’s worst
So I shall sit and listen and sort it in my mind
But, lips will not reveal, a single truth I find.

This seems to be a game we play
Seek and find, tis true
But, in the end the find I see
Is truly up to you.

For I must not forget the truth’s irrelevant at this time
You are content to have your thoughts, they bring you peace of mind
Your peace within is peace to all who share this time with you
So be it is my heart’s desire, as we start each day anew.

    that just about explains how the mind slips into oblivion, slowly, very slowly at first , then as years go by it increases speed until it is complete….very good Sheila

  3. Everything published made a great deal of sense. But, what about this?
    what if you added a little information? I ain’t saying your information isn’t good,
    however what if you added a post title to possibly get folk’s attention? I mean So
    much time has passed since this poem was written. But, its as true now
    as then. | Alzheimer’s Trail is a little boring. You could
    glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post titles
    to get viewers to click. You might add a video or a
    related pic or two to grab people interested about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it might make
    your website a little livelier.


  4. This page truly has all of the info I wanted about this subject and didn’t
    know who to ask.


  5. What’s up Dear, are you actually visiting this site
    regularly, if so then you will without doubt get nice


  6. This piece of writing provides clear idea designed for the new visitors of blogging, that actually how
    to do blogging.
