A journey in time with Alzheimer's

I don’t understand, whispered, eyes wide
The life I’ve known, where has it gone
Why restrained, what did I do wrong
I heard those words, many times
Over and over, lyrics rewind
In my head, while I slept, or not
Your frustrations, were then my lot
Now your kindness I choose to remember
Smiles ‘n compassion I’ll cherish forever
As a child, you gave me strength
To run ‘n feel free, have friends ‘n play
To dream of a future, a bright sunny day
Now you’re gone to heaven, load lifted
No more Alzheimer’s fog … for you
Smiles in my heart, memories held dear
Thank you Jesus … for my Mother
A friendship … I miss … like no other.
