A journey in time with Alzheimer's

It’s pretend

Wonders of wonders … you want one too?
Sarah’s baby doll … blond hair will do!
Everyone needs … a cuddle … a hug
Something … to watch over … love
Now mind you … says she … it’s pretend
But  mine … alone … I’ll not … lend

She’ll swaddle … protect … coo ‘n adore
No one wants loneliness … furthermore
When Alzheimer’s storms … blow ‘n rain
Sarah ‘n friend … waltz memory lane.

    Sarah doll is taking the place of her own babies…that really is rather sweet. Her mind is not abletorecognise the present but it remembers the past very well..so she probably thinks that Sarah is you…..My love and thoughts to you all… as you are all suffering effects of this terrible illness xxxxx
