A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Sweetly blow

Clearly … baby dolls …. fill a void
Caring for them … as … a child
Gentleness … tenderness
Keeps you calm … versus wild
Yesterday’s faces … memories
Seem to have … faded away

At least … from … outward signs
Silence … forgetting … portrayed
We’re talking about … baby dolls
I say … let’s find … your kid
Then out of the blue … you expound
(You have five … heaven forbid)
Sharon … Sis … Bill … Meta … David
Children you birthed … long ago
You reeled off their names quickly
(Smiled … raised your eyes)
Whispers of time … sweetly blow.
