A journey in time with Alzheimer's

No matter what/caring is sharing

Heart’s heavy …  today
Heartbroken …  miles away
Senseless killings … you see
Prayers to God … undoubtedly
Spread the word… steady go
No matter who what where
Don’t be cruel to another
Need kindness … everywhere
Be friendly … no matter what
Stop awful … nightmare
Needed … honor … veracity
Oust … barbaric … rivalry.

Provoking time

Time marches anew
Bright horizons display
Withering thoughts askew
Muddled moments … play
Thoughts ramble through
Time … shifts away.

Treasure on a shelf

Mary doll sits, on top of a shelf
I spy her often, say to myself
You’re a bright spot in my day
You lightened Mom’s load
A treasure … I’d say
Because you were there
She gave smiles away
You filled …  a void
She needed …  to care
You kept her …  from
Deepening … despair.

Walk to end Alzheimer’s this year is Oct. lst

Time to parade

Alzheimer’s lost … that day
Lucy ‘n Blue no longer play
You’re free from tangles ‘n snares
Gone forever … abyss’s nightmares
But still … there is work to do
Must continue the fight
Ban Alzheimer’s stew
Must find a cure
In memory “of you”
We’ll yell from the roof tops
From sun-up till dew
Come one and all
We care about you
We care whether or not
Your memories fade
We care if the stew
Makes you fearful … afraid
Loved ones … by the millions
Say it’s time … to parade
Donate … verbalize …  get in the fight
Research is working … let us unite
Be bold warriors … hold fast to the mission
“Cure once and for all” … that’s our position.

Smiley face

Morning madness … be gone
Sad countenance … move on
Smiley face … chase blues away
Spirits lifted … thru the day
No matter how or why blue
Attitudes … choices
Made by … you.

When I think of my Mother, it’s her smiley face I miss most of all.

Smiley face … chase blues away

Always again

Spring is here … again
Birds flying high … again
Bees buzzing … again
Flowers blooming … again
Grass green … again
Blue skies … again
Miss times gone … again
Wondering why … again
In my heart … I know
Your time … to go
Thank you Mom … again
For loving me … always.

Working on #2 book from Alzheimer’s Trail blog.  It’s challenging.  I’m hopeful it’ll be finished in a few weeks.  I need to put all my poems in books to move on.  Thanks for reading.  I am better.
