A journey in time with Alzheimer's


Some days …I leave … sad ‘n blue
Crocodile tears … missing you
Need resilience … by your side
Strength wanes … emotions collide
My heart’s … stressed … sanity beware
Alzheimer’s stifles … your life declares


Then … watching … Lady-blue
My heart strengthens … fired … anew
In spite of chaos … confusion … strife
Alzheimer’s … can’t … abate
Your … love … of … life!

    A sad decline…why should this be
    Its the way Alzheimers treated thee
    but down inside where you cannot see
    There is still the same old remembered me

    all is not lost, I am still here
    I am just slightly muddled this I fear.
    But always remember that deep inside
    Is where the real ME, still resides

    I see your face, confusion it shows
    You, not sure which way wind blows
    I could be good, to smile or frown
    Or turn your world upside down.

    But always remember daughter of mine
    My heart and love will always be thine
    So when I am no longer around
    In your heart is where I shall be found
