A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Even a moment

I see you every day … hi Sis … by the way
So glad I’m on your page … in your head
You recognize me … but … sometimes not
I’m someone nice … help bathe … feed you
I’m not a daughter … then … doesn’t last
A few moments … flabbergast … Sis, that you?
Calls out … Lady-blue … so glad you’re here
Muddled ‘n confused … misunderstood
I listen to your woes … anyone … would
Telephone calls … from miles … away
Loved ones … want to cheer you … up
Hear your voice … give hearts bouquets
But … then … suspicious … Lady-blue
Doesn’t know … what I do .. of you
Those loved ones … miles … away
Give you thought … make you ponder
Memories past … your heart wanders
Their love of you … your need to hear
Even a moment … draws … you … near!

  1. Through your poems, you show us and explain what type of life is like. How ever would we know otherwise? ❤ ❤ ❤

  2. Yet, you still celebrate your mom and in no way make her less than she has always been. 🐻
